Summaries for Prostatic Hyperplasia, Benign

OMIM : 57 Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) refers to the nonmalignant growth of the prostate gland, and is histologically defined as hyperplasia of the prostate gland. BPH is an age-related phenomenon in men beginning at about age 40 years. BPH may result in prostatic enlargement and clinical symptoms most commonly affecting the lower urinary tract. These symptoms may be obstructive, including hesitancy, weak flow, and urinary retention, or irritative, including increased frequency and urgency. However, not all men with histologic BPH will develop prostatic enlargement or urinary symptoms (review by Roehrborn, 2005). (600082)

MalaCards based summary : Prostatic Hyperplasia, Benign, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia, is related to prostatic hypertrophy and prostatic adenoma, and has symptoms including prostatism An important gene associated with Prostatic Hyperplasia, Benign is CDKN2B-AS1 (CDKN2B Antisense RNA 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Transcription Androgen Receptor nuclear signaling and Metabolism of steroid hormones. The drugs Scopolamine and Saw palmetto have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include prostate, testes and smooth muscle, and related phenotype is benign prostatic hyperplasia.
