BPH is an increase in the size of the prostate that may cause urinary symptoms like blockage of urine flow and increased frequency of urination. It is a fairly common condition that affects most men above the age of 60. BPH is a non-cancerous and harmless enlargement, and should not be a cause of extreme worry.
