What Is Bhp?
Benign Hypertrophy Of Prostate Is A Condition In Which There Is Enlargement Of Prostate Gland As Men Get Older Which Is A Part Of Aging. But It Becomes A Problem When The Enlarged Prostate Starts To Show Symptoms.
The Prostate Surrounds A Part Of Urethra In Males Which Carries Urine And Semen To Penis. When The Prostate Is Enlarged It Compresses The Urethra Thus Causing Blockage To The Flow Of Urine.
Bhp Is A Benign Condition Thus It Is Not Related To Or Cause Cancer But Both Conditions Can Occur Together As Well.
