Prostate conditions

We have an enviable team of leading UK urologists who are experts in diagnosing and treating the following prostate conditions.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate is a very common condition in men. Unlike other organs in the body, the prostate gland continues to grow during every man’s lifespan. The prostate grows gradually after the age of about 50 and by the age of 70, approximately 8 out of 10 men have an enlarged prostate.

Prostate cancer is the most common male cancer in the UK, with more than 34,000 men diagnosed each year. For many, there are no symptoms of prostate cancer. In recent years, there have been important advances in assessments for prostate cancer and at Birmingham Prostate Clinic, our focus is upon a personalised understanding of your individual prostate cancer risk.

Prostatitis literally means “inflammation of the prostate” – just as tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils and appendicitis is inflammation of the appendix. The prostate is a gland which is situated at the base of the bladder in men. Its job is to produce fluid which is released at the time of ejaculation.
