How common is BPH

BPH is the most common disease of mankind. It has been said that if a man lives long enough, he will develop BPH; however, autopsy studies have shown that some men, even in their 30s, have anatomic evidence for significant prostate enlargement. The degree of prostatic enlargement is variable; however, the following numbers are useful guidelines. At the age of 30 years, an average prostate size is 20 grams; by age 70 years, the average prostate size is 35 grams.

As an estimate, if you take a man's chronologic age in years, roughly that percentage of men at that age will have signs of BPH. It is important to note that there is not a linear correlation between prostate size and prostate symptoms. Some men with relatively small glands will have significant symptoms, whereas some men with large glands will have minimal symptoms.
