Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
According to Ng & Baradhi (2020) benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is usually understood as
a nonmalignant growth or hyperplasia of prostate tissue. It is considered a common cause of
lower urinary tract symptoms in men. The disease prevalence has presented a very visible
increment with advancing age. Surprisingly the histological prevalence of BPH at autopsy is “as
high as 50% to 60% for males in their 60's, increasing to 80% to 90% of those over 70 years of
age.” Ng & Baradhi (2020)
Another interesting point is that there are various definitions in the literature when describing
BPH. For example “bladder outlet obstruction (BOO), lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS),
and benign prostatic enlargement (BPE).” Ng & Baradhi (2020)
The recommended treatment options for BPH start from watchful waiting and go to medical and
surgical intervention. Ng & Baradhi (2020)
“Risk factors may be divided into non-modifiable and modifiable, with factors such as age,
genetics, geographical location, and obesity, all shown to influence the development of BPH.”
Ng & Baradhi (2020)
In conclusion it is important to educate the public in regards of lifestyle factors that can have an
impact in the development of BPH and can be addressed through diet advice, weight loss, and
glycemic control. Ng & Baradhi (2020)
