Enlarged Prostate

An enlarged prostate, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is a common condition in older men. The prostate is a walnut sized gland that surrounds the urethra, which starts at the base of the bladder and runs through the middle of the prostate. Over time, an enlarged prostate can stop or slow the flow of urine, causing bladder and kidney problems.

If you are suffering from an enlarged prostate, talk to us. Our team of urologists at City of Hope are experts who use leading-edge methods to diagnose and treat the many urologic conditions that affect millions of men.
