• Benign Enlargement of Prostate (BEP)



Summary of BEP

BEP is a non-cancerous overgrowth of a part of prostate gland in males. This growth in turn compresses the urethra at the bladder neck and thus interferes with flow of urine from the bladder.

It is a commonly occurring condition and although the exact cause is not known, it has been linked to altered levels of male hormones.

BEP, to a small extent, begins beyond the age of 40 years and is almost always present in men beyond 80 years. Click to read Causes of Benign Enlargement of Prostate (BEP).
