Benign prostatic hyperplasia or hypertrophy (BPH) is an enlargement of the prostate gland that affects almost all men as they age. It is non-cancerous growth, but can cause debilitating urinary symptoms such as frequency, urgency, dribbling, and straining. Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the most effective form of therapy, but it has a high risk of equally debilitating complications, other forms of surgery are not yet as successful; medication is also use to improve symptoms. Having no treatment can result in irreversible damage.
