BPH Causes and Prevention

Causes of BPH

BPH is a common part of aging. Risk factors for the development of BPH are poorly understood. Many researchers believe it is linked to aging and it may be linked to the growth of the testicles. Men who have had their testicles removed at a young age because of cancer, for instance -- do not develop BPH. Similarly, if the testicles are removed after a man develops BPH, the prostate begins to shrink in size. No risk factors have been identified other than having normally functioning testicles.

However, BPH occurs in nearly all men over time, as long as they have testes. About 50% of men who are 50 have evidence of microscopic enlargement of the prostate gland, and at least 30% of men require treatment by the time they reach 70 years of age.

Prevention of BPH

The urination problems caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)cannot be prevented. Some people believe that regular ejaculations will help prevent prostate enlargement. But there is no scientific proof that ejaculation helps.

However, there are some small tips which are good for the prostate.
