What is BPH?

BPH is an enlarged prostate. It’s not cancer. Just something most men have to deal with at some point in life. You can’t say no to BPH. But you can say “no more” to symptoms like waking up at night to urinate. Having the urgent need to go. Or a weak stream. Left untreated, it can lead to more serious urinary, bladder and kidney problems. BPH may be a fact of life, but not one you need to live with. Start exploring your options here. Why wait?
