An enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, can compromise your quality of life. You may make frequent trips to the bathroom and get less restful sleep as a result. In severe cases, an untreated enlarged prostate can lead to bladder infections, inability to urinate (acute urinary retention), and kidney failure.
