Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy or hyperplasia is a condition in which the prostate gland becomes larger than its usual size. This condition is more frequently observed in older men, and gives rise to problems related to the bladder, urinary tract, or kidneys.

People who are obese, diabetic or those who suffer from heart diseases are at a high risk of getting BPH.
