Urine Trouble: Uncovering Patient Understanding of an Enlarged Prostate
An enlarged prostate is a common condition in men as they age. In some cases, the enlarged prostate will put pressure on the urethra, causing it to narrow and ultimately restrict the flow of urine, which causes other adverse side effects. This condition, known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), is a common condition that affects 8 out of 10 men in their lifetime.
Despite the prevalence, many men lack awareness about prostate health and are reluctant to seek valuable treatment. Recently, Olympus conducted a consumer survey to learn more about their awareness and understanding of BPH and the causes, concerns, and treatments associated.
