50% of males over 50 suffer BPH

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is experienced by over fifty percent of males over the age of fifty and we treat patients well into their nineties. The condition occurs due to sexual ageing and progressively gets worse over a period of time.

A man's prostate gland has a dual purpose of enabling the flow of urine from the bladder through to assisting in sperm production. As men age and sperm production drops, the prostate becomes enlarged and presses on both the bladder and the pelvic floor and narrows the urethra (tube that carries the urine). The prostate gland pressing on the bladder, tricks the body into constantly wanting to urinate, often when there is nothing there.

Urination Issues Caused by Prostate Enlargement

Another effect is that the narrowed tube that impedes the flow of urine runs from the bladder, through the Prostate (the urethra) resulting in it taking longer to urinate. And a further impact is that it takes more time to finish and there can then be dribbling.

The cumulative effect is that sufferers increasingly feel the urge to go to the loo, when they get there, it may take some time getting started and significantly longer to finish. Plus, when they have finished, they have to be really careful because there may be some follow through, and it is difficult for them to gauge when they have completely finished.

It is normal that men who are diagnosed with BPH will be concerned about Prostate Cancer. There is, however, no increased link to Prostate Cancer.

Many men suffer in silence with this condition and when they pluck up the courage to visit their GP, they discover that there are limited options available.
