BPH Symptoms Test

Do I Have BPH?

Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) (or benign prostatic hyperplasia) is a condition characterized by an enlarged prostate gland. Symptoms of BPH include dribbling after urinating, feeling that the bladder has not emptied completely after urination, frequent urination, an interrupted or weakened urinary stream, the need to push or strain to begin urination, an urgent need to urinate, and blood in the urine. These symptoms occur because the prostate grows either around the urethra (the tube that transports the urine) and squeezes it, or into the urethra. In both cases, urinary flow is affected.
