What is BPH?

Is your prostate squeezing enjoyment out of your life?

Is peeing difficult? It shouldn’t be, but for millions of men, it is.

Your body was designed to perform thousands of functions that allow you to enjoy life. Due to the placement and compact nature of your organs, when an organ is improperly functioning or too large, it can cause significant damage to your other organs and your health.

When your prostate, a small gland the size of the pit of a peach, expands, it can obstruct your urethra, which allows urine to flow out of your bladder. This causes pain, can lead to health issues, and disrupts your life.

Take a stand against the effect BPH is having on your life and request an appointment with Urology One experts today!

Man discusses BPH Symptoms with a urologist

What is Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) & what symptoms does it cause?

Are you struggling with Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, commonly referred to as BPH? To know for sure, you need to schedule an appointment with a urologist. However, there are common symptoms that can give you clues as to if you have BPH.

BPH is a noncancerous condition that happens when your prostate grows, which is common with age. When your prostate grows, it can put pressure on your urethra. When pressure is placed on your urethra, urinating is difficult. Your stream will have trouble starting and stopping, and your flow can become irregular.

Symptoms of BPH lead to the following urination-related issues:

  • Pain
  • Burning sensation
  • Weak streams
  • No control
  • Immediate urgency
  • Leaks
  • Dribbles

BPH is a treatable condition. Before seeking treatment, schedule a full examination with a urologist to determine if your symptoms are indeed caused by BPH.
