What are the causes of an enlarge Prostate?

[display_name id=”1″]It is common for the prostate gland to enlarge as a man ages. The condition is referred to as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), or Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy.Prostate enlargement is as common as gray hair in the aging process. As life expectancy rises, so does the occurrence of BPH.

As a man matures, the prostate goes through two periods of growth. The first occurs early in puberty and the prostate doubles in size.

Around age 25, the gland begins to grow again. This second growth often results in an enlarged prostate gland later in life.

As the prostate enlarges the layer of tissue surrounding the prostate ceases to expand. This causes the prostate gland to press against the urethra. The bladder wall becomes thicker and irritable. The bladder begins to contract even when it contains small amounts of urine, leading to more frequent urination.

Eventually, the bladder weakens and loses the ability to empty. This can cause symptoms similar to a urinary tract infection.

Hope this helps!
