BPH can be identified as enlargement of prostate gland, a condition affects majority of male population. It is non-cancerous and goes through two main growth periods as a man age. The first phase begins in puberty, when the size of prostate becomes double. The second phase of prostate growth normally begins in the second decade of life. It is observed that men with a family history of BPH and chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity, and diabetes are at higher risk of developing BPH. The condition thickens bladder wall, and eventually the bladder may weaken and lose the ability to empty completely. BPH is also associated with complications of urinary tract infection, bladder stones, kidney damage, and constant urge to urinate. The root cause of the disease remains unknown; however, increased level of estrogen is a suspected reason for the occurrence of this disease.
