Overview

Frequent urination, an overwhelming urge to urinate, difficulty urinating, and urinary leakage are uncomfortable symptoms that may signal benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), typically known as an enlarged prostate. While the condition is most common among older men, it should be treated immediately at any age to prevent more serious issues from occurring, such as damage to your bladder or kidneys. Duke’s urologists are experts in diagnosing and treating enlarged prostates. They can recommend the best treatment to help you achieve better control of your urine flow.
