Benign prostatic hyperplasia
With age, the prostate increases in size causing pressure on the urethra. This causes problems with urination. The growth of the prostate with age is called benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH.
Its own name indicates: Hyperplasia: means increase in size. Benign: means that this increase is not a cancer.
Therefore, benign prostatic hyperplasia or “having or suffering from the prostate” as it is said colloquially is one of the most common benign problems in men after 50 years.
Fundamentally it is because over the years, the prostate is growing in all men (some affects them more than others) and this growth causes a compression in the urethra, similar to how a hose clamp would. This causes problems mainly when urinating.
