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.
