Are there any serious risks to your health?

Your age, a family history of prostate problems, obesity and chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease can all increase your chances of an enlarged prostate. But ignoring the symptoms can lead to serious complications.

How might this affect you?

A number of medical conditions could be related to your inability to fully empty your bladder.

  • Sudden urinary blockage
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Inflammation of the prostate
  • Bladder stones and damage
  • Kidney stones and damage

While most men with enlarged prostates don't develop these conditions, you can lower your risk by taking control of your BPH at the earliest stage.
