Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a scary-sounding name. It affects 25 percent of men by age 55 and half of the male population by age 75. It has easily recognizable symptoms, and is non-cancerous, but some of the test results can look like cancer.
What’s the difference between BPH and prostate cancer? The most important difference is that BPH, or an enlarged prostate gland, is not cancerous. It doesn’t mean you won’t ever get prostate cancer, but an enlarged prostate is a common condition as men get older.
When a man is having concerns about erectile dysfunction, it may take him a while to finally address the topic with his doctor. There may be a lot of anxiety and fear about a diagnosis and even about having the erectile dysfunction exam.
