Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
This photograph is an MRI scan of a patient's enlarged prostate gland. The patient was diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This is a less serious condition than prostate cancer as it is benign, noncancerous, and does not spread to other areas of the body. However, BPH can cause similar urinary symptoms to prostate cancer. Both conditions can cause an enlarged prostate gland to interrupt the flow of urine.
