Benign prostate hyperplasia

The prostate is a glandular organ present in men and is crossed by the urethra. It is involved in semen formation (80% of its content) and is therefore a sexual organ. When it grows, especially after the age of 50, it results in benign hyperplasia, but there are some symptoms, as the prostatic urethra consequently becomes narrower and thus obstructs the normal passage of urine.

The urethra is the urinary passage that goes from the bladder to the outside. In men, it has two branches; the prostatic urethra (passing through the prostate) and the spongy urethra, which crosses the entire penis to the outside.
