A few words about the film

Prostatic Hyperplasia, along with erectile dysfunction, is one of the most common problem in males. Micturition problems usually occur above the age of 50. The caliber (diameter) of the urinary stream decreases, urinary frequency and nocturia appear and symptoms increase more and more with time. Getting informed and asking for help even from the early stages of the disease can prevent serious negative effects on quality of life and also inhibit the progression of the disease. Watching this film, you will get to learn information about the prostate gland, its hyperplasia (hypertrophy), signs and symptoms, diagnosis and therapeutic options available today.
