Were you looking for information about Enlarged Prostate? Prostrate enlargement is a common misspelling and variation of enlarged prostate.
Prostate enlargement is also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or benign prostatic hypertrophy. Although the prostate continues to grow during most of a man's life, an enlarged prostate rarely causes symptoms before age 40. Symptoms vary, but most commonly involve changes in or problems with urination.
Treatment typically isn't needed in the early stages of the condition. Later on, however, a doctor may prescribe medications or surgery. About half the men with this condition eventually have symptoms that are bothersome enough to require treatment.
