Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the medical term for prostate enlargement (enlarged prostate) due to the increased spread of prostate cells and tissues. This enlargement can block the bladder and cause difficulty in urination and lower urinary tract symptoms. When the prostate undergoes an analysis performed by a medical professional, the presence of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) can be determined in order to provide a proper diagnosis. Sometimes men can experience lower urinary tract symptoms without having benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), so a definitive diagnosis is important.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) symptoms can range from increased frequency of urination to nocturia (urinating at night), from hesitancy to urgency, and a weak urinary stream. No two treatments are alike, as it all depends on the severity of symptoms. Some men are treated for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) despite not having been formally diagnosed via histological examination, so some experts will differentiate treating histologically confirmed benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) from treating symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
When coping with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), it is recommended to increase physical activity, eat a healthy diet, reduce or avoid alcohol intake, regulate fluid intake, and consider the side effects of other medications the patient may be taking, which could possibly aggravate BPH symptoms. Aside from lifestyle changes, watchful waiting, medications and surgery may also be an option.
It is common for men mild symptoms to treat their benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with watchful waiting, lifestyle changes, and phytotherapy. Moderate to severe symptoms may require prescribed medications and surgery. Regardless of where symptoms fall on the severity scale, many men seek natural alternative and complementary treatments that can fit easily with their lifestyle.
