Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
What is a Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland, leading to urinary obstruction. Despite being noncancerous, BPH symptoms may mirror those of prostate cancer, demonstrating the need for regular screenings. While research shows BPH itself doesn't increase the risk of prostate cancer, screenings are crucial for early detection, especially for those with a higher risk. Routine prostate screenings are essential between ages 40 and 64, with earlier screenings for those with increased susceptibility.
