Benign prostatic hyperplasia  is the medical term to describe an enlarged prostate.  Hyperplasia means an increase in the number of cells. The increased amount of cells causes the prostate to grow bigger. 

An enlarged prostate is very common in men over the age of around 50. Not all men with an enlarged prostate experience symptoms. But as the prostate grows, it can press on the urethra, causing problems with the flow of urine as you try to urinate. 

Signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia include:

  • Problems passing urine, including difficulty starting the urine flow
  • A weak stream and dribbling after going to the toilet
  • Passing urine more frequently
  • Getting up at night to pass urine
  • An urgent need to pass urine
  • Incontinence and leakage of urine
  • The feeling that the bladder is not emptying properly

This condition can be treated with lifestyle changes, medication and surgery.
