Men’s Health Fact #2

Prostate Disease: BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) and prostatitis are concerns for men. Both cause the prostate to swell and can cause painful or difficult urination.

BPH - Sometimes called "prostate enlargement" is common among aging men. Half of men between the ages of 50 and 60 will develop it, and about 90% of men aged 70 or 80.

Prostatitis - May be caused by an infection and is the most common prostate problem for men under 50. About half of adult men will be treated for it in their lifetime.
