Caption

Enlarged prostate. Section through a gross specimen of an enlarged prostate (right) due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a non-cancerous enlargement. The kidneys are at left. The prostate site underneath the bladder (not seen), surrounding the urethra, the tube urine passes through. When it is enlarged the prostate presses on the urethra, causing problems with passing urine. BPH is a common condition, affecting half of all men over 50. Most cases requite no treatment, but more severe cases can be treated with muscle relaxants or surgical removal of the prostate.
