Free Community Seminar to Review Treatment Options for Enlarged Prostate
Date:2/12/2009

Supporting men's health awareness by exploring solutions to the most common health problem for men over the age of 60

MERCER, Pa., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The causes and treatments of enlarged prostate will be the focus of a free community seminar on February 20, 2009 at 6:30pm at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Mercer. Also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), this non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate affects more than half of all men over the age of 60 and more than 26 million men in the United States each year.

Although BPH is a common health problem, many men lack awareness and understanding about the condition, symptoms, treatment solutions and overall health risks associated with delaying treatment. Dr. Kenneth Hu will be hosting the educational seminar titled "Finding a Satisfying Solution to Enlarged Prostate" and will cover symptoms as well as the range of effective treatment options now available to men who suffer from BPH.

By age 80, about 80 percent of all men have BPH. Symptoms include difficulty in urinating, a reduced urine stream, straining to urinate, frequency of urination, and a feeling that the bladder never completely empties.

Hu is a specialist dealing with BPH and will hold an open question and answer session at the conclusion of the session. Also on hand will be patients who have experienced BPH, who can share how they successfully overcame the problem.

The impact of BPH on the quality of life of patients and their partners will also be discussed. Spouses or partners are invited and encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be served, and the presentation will last approximately one hour.

The seminar is free and open to the public. Space is limited, so please make a reservation by calling 866-HEAL-BPH (866-432-5274). The Hampton Inn & Suites is located at 4 Holiday Boulevard in Mercer.
