This video from CanadaQBank shares everything you need to know about benign prostate hyperplasia.
The video starts out by comparing a diagram of the urinary system in a healthy male to that of a BPH patient. The difference between the two images is very apparent with the prostate enlarged and compressing the urethra in the patient with BPH.
The video describes the common symptoms of BPH and how they can be treated either with surgery or medication. It also discusses the hormones involved in the development of BPH and how the medications help to block the conversion of testosterone to DHT.
