Benign Prostatic Enlargement - Causes and Risk Factors

Causes of Benign Prostatic Enlargement

BPE occurs because of a complex interaction between the male hormone dihydroxytestosterone (DHT - active component of testosterone), small amounts of oestrogen (female hormone), and other growth factors. This results in an imbalance of cell growth and death, and subsequent prostate growth and enlargement.

Risk factors of Benign Prostatic Enlargement
