About Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH)

Welcome to BPH Canada. We are a Canadian BPH treatment centre focused on less invasive therapies for benign prostate hyperplasia. Our team, including leading Montreal urologist Dr. Kevin Zorn, is here to answer your questions about BPH and its treatments.

Prostate Enlargement & BPH

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlarged prostate gland. BPH is a common condition as men get older. The prostate is a small gland that starts out about the size of a walnut. As men age, the gland becomes enlarged.

About half of men with the condition have no symptoms other than the change in size. For others, urinary and sexual issues can result, including impeding urine flow, leading to bladder, urinary tract or kidney problems.

You can do a lot to take care of yourself and give your body what it needs. Still, as you get older, your body changes in ways you can’t always control. For most men, one of those changes is that the prostate gets bigger.

In this condition, the enlarged prostate enlarges may compress the urethra (the tube that carries urine and semen from the bladder through the penis) causing problems urinating. BPH can cause various urinary symptoms, known collectively as lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).

BPH isn’t prostate cancer and doesn’t make you more likely to get it.

It’s a common condition, and there are a lot of treatments for it, from lifestyle changes to medication to surgery. Your doctor can help you choose the best care based on your age, health, and how the condition affects you.
