benign prostatic hyperplasia
Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a common, noncancerous condition of men above 50 years old (it affects about 30 to 50% of older men). The enlarged prostate (a walnut-sized gland at the base of the penis) obstructs the urethra (the small tube that carries urine from the bladder) and causes frequent urination.
