Urology Health Solutions specializes in treating BPH, or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. While many men deal with the symptoms of BPH, many are left wondering what is BPH caused by. This common condition in men occurs due to an enlarged prostate. As the prostate glands grow, the urethra, which allows urine to exit your bladder, may become pinched from the additional pressure placed on your urethra by your enlarged prostate. BPH can make a normal and necessary function, like the need and ability to urinate, complicated for its sufferers.
Millions of men across the globe develop BPH when they get older. About half of men develop symptoms of BPH in their 50’s and by 80 years old the vast majority of men are suffering from BPH.
By working with a qualified urologist, you can determine if the pain and symptoms you’re experiencing are caused by BPH. You may have BPH if you’re experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:
- Weak streams
