For the 14 million men in the United States with urinary symptoms resulting from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlargement of the prostate, the condition can be more than a source of discomfort. In addition to frequent bathroom visits and interrupted sleep, there can be fear about the future. Concerns can arise such as: How will my life be impacted if my symptoms continue to worsen? Are the risks of medical intervention worse than “benign” neglect? Do alternative treatments really work? These questions must be considered carefully, as BPH can lead to urinary blockage or cause bladder or kidney problems.
