Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is probably a normal part of the aging process in men,
caused by changes in hormone balance and cell-growth factors. Genetics may also
play a role. This is especially true for severe BPH
requiring surgery in men younger than 60.
Men who are older than
50 have a higher chance of developing BPH. But why some men have more severe
symptoms than others is not known.
