Help for enlarged prostate sufferers

9 years ago222 views

Prostate UK is launching a campaign to raise awareness of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. BPH affects more than a third of men aged over 50 years, equating to around 3.2 million men in the UK, most of whom suffer in silence. The campaign is being unveiled at a parliamentary reception in the House of Commons, which the charity is hosting with funding from GlaxoSmithKline UK Limited (GSK).

The campaign has two key objectives. The first is to encourage men to seek medical advice for unexplained urinary symptoms rather than assuming they are a normal part of ageing. The second is to ensure that where appropriate, BPH is managed by GPs in the primary care setting in order to treat it earlier and minimise costly surgical interventions.

This video, narrated by This Morning GP Dr Chris Steele, looks into BPH and hears from those who suffer from it.
