Prostate enlargement (BPH)
Benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, is a non-cancerous enlargement or growth of the prostate gland. It’s the most common prostate disease. The prostate surrounds the top part of the urethra (the urine passage between the bladder and the tip of the penis) so when your prostate grows, it makes the urethra narrower and puts pressure on the base of the bladder which can affect the passing of urine. It's not usually life threatening, but some symptoms can have an impact on your life.
