Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate. The prostate is a gland in males that is located below the bladder and surrounding the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder through the penis. The prostate, which is about the size of a walnut in teenage years, can grow to be as large as an orange by the time a man is in his 70s.

It is an operation that generally requires at least a one- to two-day stay in the hospital during which the bladder is continuously irrigated to prevent obstruction from blood clots. A catheter is left in place to drain urine from the patient’s bladder for one to three days. TURP is generally used to
