` _BENIGN PROSTATES CAUSES , SYMPTOMS AND MANAGEMENT“_ `
_Benign prostatic hyperplasia also called (BPH)is a non-cancerous (benign) enlargement of the prostate gland that can make urination difficult.the prostate gland enlarges as men age,men may have difficult urinating and feel the need to urinate more often and more urgently._
_Benign prostatic hyperplasia [BPH] is also a condition in men in which the prostate gland is enlarged and not cancerous. Benign prostatic hyperplasia is also called benign prostatic hypertrophy or benign prostatic obstruction.
The prostate goes through two main growth periods as a man ages. The first occurs early in puberty, when the prostate doubles in size.
The second phase of growth begins around age 25 and continues during most of a man’s life. Benign prostatic hyperplasia often occurs with the second growth phase.
As the prostate enlarges, the gland presses against and pinches the urethra. The bladder wall becomes thicker. Eventually, the bladder may weaken and lose the ability to empty completely, leaving some urine in the bladder.
The narrowing of the urethra and urinary retention the inability to empty the bladder completely cause many of the problems associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia.
*What is the prostate?*
The prostate is a walnut-shaped gland that is part of the male reproductive system. The main function of the prostate is to make a fluid that goes into semen. Prostate fluid is essential for a man’s fertility. The gland surrounds the urethra at the neck of the bladder. The bladder neck is the area where the urethra joins the bladder. The bladder and urethra are parts of the lower urinary tract. The prostate has two or more lobes, or sections, enclosed by an outer layer of tissue, and it is in front of the rectum, just below the bladder. The urethra is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. In men, the urethra also carries semen out through the penis.
