Thank goodness we only have to concern ourselves with three diseases of the prostate :-
BPH is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia a non-malignant growth of the tissue of the gland.
Prostatitis is usually an inflammation of the tissue of the gland caused by bacteria. Although non bacterial problems are thought also to play apart sometimes.
Prostate Cancer is probably the prostate disease which is commonly known due to the publicity given to it in the press. With a population of some 28 million males in the UK you can see that some of the press publicity is pretty wild when the death toll is put at some 10,000 per year.
