What causes prostate problem?

The answer is prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). All men above 40 years have microscopic evidence of hypertrophy but around 20% of them suffer due to this problem, 50% of whom require surgery. A new kind of tissue, known as adenoma arises from the normal prostatic tissue, which Is benign in nature. Cancer when present usually starts near the outside of the prostate. Around 3% of male population suffers from it. Cancerous tumour feels hard on examination.
