BHP/BEP-BENIGN HYPERTROPHY OF PROSTATE
BEP is a non-cancerous overgrowth of a part of prostate gland in males. This growth in turn compresses the urethra at the bladder neck and thus interferes with flow of urine from the bladder. It is a commonly occurring condition and although the exact cause is not known, it has been linked to altered levels of male hormones. BEP, to a small extent, begins beyond the age of 40 years and is almost always present in men beyond 80 years.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Complications of BEP are rooted in the basic phenomenon of obstruction to flow of urine from bladder to the urethra by the benign prostatic growth. Thus following complicated states are commonly seen:
- Retention of urine: Either acute or chronic, requiring catherization
- Infection of urinary tract: Secondary to retention, the stagnated urine can cause recurrent urinary tract infections.
- Chronic prostatitis and bladder infections are common.
- Bladder stones: Minerals present in urine, over a period of time due to stagnation can lead to large bladder stone formations.
- Damaged kidneys: Chronic retention of urine leads to backflow of urine into kidneys, causing recurrent infections and damage to structure of the kidneys.
While BPH can have serious complications, it is NOT a cancer and is considered a normal part of men’s aging process. It is caused by changes in hormone balance and in cell growth. But if left untreated, BPH can lead to bladder, urinary tract or kidney problems.
