Almost all men will develop some prostate enlargement as they age therefore prostate health is an increasingly important concern. Benign prostate enlargement (BPE), also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlargement of the prostate1 which may develop gradually over a number of years. It is the most common urological condition among men.
While surgery and medication are treatment options for BPH, there are also nutritional and lifestyle changes that can be made to help promote better prostate health in general and manage symptoms of BPH. Other conditions that can affect the prostate include cancer and prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland) although BPH will be the focus of this blog.
