Benign Prostatic Hypertropy
Benign Prostate Hypertrophy (BPH), explained in simple terms, is enlargement of prostate. During puberty, the prostate starts growing in size. The growth continues for the rest of life, though not consistently. When the prostate grows so much that the urethra near it is getting squeezed, the condition is called Benign Prostate Hypertrophy.
Note that BPH is neither prostate cancer nor does it cause cancer. But its symptoms can debilitate the quality of life of the patient.
Prostatitis is swelling and inflammation of prostate gland. It is not prostate cancer and is different from Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) too.
There are four types of Prostatitis. Each has a different set of symptoms, causes, and treatments.
Acute Bacterial Prostatitis
Acute bacterial prostatitis is caused when the bacteria in the urinary tract reach the prostate and cause severe infection there.
