Nursing Care Plan – Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy also called enlarged prostate. Aproximately one of four men who reaches 80 years of age will require treatment for BPH. The exact cause of benign prostatic hyperplasia is unknown. Factors linked to aging and the testicles themselves may play a role in the growth of the gland. Men who have had their testicles removed at a young age (for example, as a result of testicular cancer) do not develop BPH.
