Enlarged Prostate (BPH)

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate, the gland that transports semen during ejaculation.  An enlarged prostate can affect urinary function, leading to frequent trips to the bathroom and disrupted sleep.

 

BPH is very common and you don’t have to live with it. Watch the Medical Review TV segment airing on major television networks.  Then take the Symptom Quiz below and talk with your doctor to find the solution that is right for you.

Are you suffering from BPH?
