Prostate Enlargement (BPH)

Nearly 60 % of men between 40 to 59 have an enlarged prostate gland, A condition that is known in the medical community as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The  Prostate is a walnut-sized gland located just below the bladder that produces seminal fluid.

In some cases, the prostate becomes enlarged due to stimulation by the hormone dihydrotestosterone.

The amount of dihydrotestosterone present in the body from day to day depends on the amount of testosterone present. When levels of testosterone increase, more of it is converted to dihydrotestosterone and so levels of dihydrotestosterone therefore also increase as a result. This hormone also causes the prostate to grow and is thought to combine with testosterone causing the expression of male sexual behavior.

This enlargement can disrupt the flow of urine when the prostate presses against the urethral opening. When this occurs, a man is said to have a noncancerous condition known as benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH);. The condition, if left untreated, eventually obstructs the bladder outlet and result in retention of urine in the blood Untreated and cause kidney damage.
