The prostate gland (the prostate) is an organ of the male reproductive system. The three most common forms of prostate disease are inflammation (prostatitis), non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH), and prostate cancer. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is defined as a medical condition affecting men. It involves the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. While BPH rarely shows symptoms before the age of 40, the risk of contracting BPH increases with age. The condition affects nearly 50% of men between the ages of 51 and 60 and up to 90% of men older than 80. Treatment measures such as medications and surgery have been used for patients with BPH.
Growth in Prostate Health Market is primarily driven by the increasing prevalence of benign prostatic hyperplasia, increasing obesity, investments, funds, and grants for research in prostate health, an increase in the prevalence of prostate cancer, a surge in demand for hormone therapy drugs, emerging therapies for prostate cancer, and an increasing incidence of prostatitis.
