  • BPH
    BPH is a common condition in which prostate cells begin to increase in number. This growth, part of the aging process, compresses the urethra making it difficult or painful to urinate. Although it is not known exactly what causes an enlarged prostate, the majority of all men will experience it as they age. It is important to note that Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is not cancerous and is not life threatening, but it does affect your day-to-day life in inconvenient and unpleasant ways.
