Benign hypertrophy of the prostate is a condition in which there is an enlargement of the prostate gland as men get older which is a part of aging. But it becomes a problem when the enlarged prostate starts to show symptoms.
The prostate surrounds a part of the urethra in males which carries urine and semen to the penis. When the prostate is enlarged it compresses the urethra thus causing blockage to the flow of urine.
BHP is a benign condition thus it is not related to or causes cancer but both conditions can occur together as well.
The exact cause of enlargement of the prostate is not known but it is seen that it is an age-related process so hormones are thought to play role in BHP.
Conventional treatment includes conservative treatment for the symptoms of enlarged prostate and in cases having many problems invasive surgical procedures are used.
Here are a few tips to manage symptoms of BHP:
Homeopathy can take care of BHP very well just with medicines. The medicines would help decrease in size of the prostate and thus would eventually control the symptoms of BHP without any need for surgery. The homeopathic system is quite effective in taking care of almost every chronic disease. Consult a good homeopath for your issue with the prostate.
