Prostate- benign prostatic hypertrophy

Prostate- benign prostatic hypertrophy :
Benign prostatic hyperplasia, also known as benign prostatic hypertrophy, or simply BPH, is a commonly-occurring condition among men 45 years and older. By age 45, approximately 50 percent of all males in the United States have some degree of BPH. It is characterized by an enlarged and/or inflamed prostate gland that makes normal urination difficult. The prostate gland, which is located at the base of the bladder and surrounds the urethra, produces substances that protect and enhance the functions of sperm cells, and also helps to protect the entire genitourinary system against infection and disease. By age seventy, 80% of all men in the U.S. experience BPH. As a result, most conventional physicians consider it to be a natural consequence of aging, a view that is disputed by practitioners of natural medicine.
