Common urinary issues, from urinary tract infections to kidney stones or bladder cancer, can affect anyone. Some conditions, such as erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence, may impact your personal confidence, and talking about these issues can sometimes be uncomfortable. A consultation with a urologist will help you understand and treat your symptoms. Urologists treat patients with kidney, ureter, bladder, prostate, urethra and male genital structure disorders and injuries. They often coordinate care with nephrologists for patients with kidney disease.

What is BPH?

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. Over 70% of men in their 60s have BPH symptoms so it is very common1. While BPH is a benign condition and unrelated to prostate cancer, it can greatly affect a man’s quality of life.

The prostate is a male reproductive gland, about the size of a walnut, that produces fluid for semen. The prostate surrounds the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. As the prostate enlarges, it presses on and blocks the urethra, causing bothersome urinary symptoms such as:

  • Frequent need to urinate both day and night
  • Weak or slow urinary stream
  • A sense that you cannot completely empty your bladder
  • Difficulty or delay in starting urination
  • Urgent feeling of needing to urinate
  • A urinary stream that stops and starts

If you suffer from the above symptoms, you are not alone. BPH is one of the leading reasons for men to visit a urologist.
