Prostate Treatment

What is BPH?

BPH is a condition that affects many men as they age. Your prostate is part of your reproductive system, and its primary job is to make the fluid that carries your sperm during ejaculation.

Your prostate goes through two periods of growth, the first coming during puberty. At about age 25, the prostate starts to grow again and keeps growing for life. As the prostate enlarges it may press on your urethra, which can impair urination and lead to issues with your bladder.
