BPH - Enlarged Prostate Treatment in St. George, UT
Beginning at about age 40, hormonal changes cause the number of cells in a manís prostate to increase causing the prostate to grow and constrict the urine tube that runs through its center. An enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, is not cancerous, but over time it can cause bothersome urinary symptoms.
The symptoms of an enlarged prostate may be mild or come and go, and as a result, most men wait several months, even years, before seeing a doctor. In general, waiting to see a physician does not pose a problem.
Treatment is available when the symptoms of an enlarged prostate are affecting your quality of life or are so severe that they put you at risk for serious complications like urinary tract infections or bladder or kidney damage.
