BPH and Prostate Cancer


BPH stands for benign prostatic hyperplasia and is a more severe enlargement of the prostate gland; the prostate gland experiences a non-cancerous growth that pushes on the bladder and contracts the urethra leading to urinary side effects that may or may not effect daily life. Some symptoms of BPH may be confused with the similar symptoms of prostate cancer. Patients who feel that BPH interferes with the enjoyment of everyday life, should see a doctor about possibly undergoing the transurethral resection of the prostate which will create a wider channel for the urethra where it passes through the prostate gland.
