BPH Prostate Enlargement and Stem Cells

Prostate enlargement, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is a condition that affects many older men. The prostate gland is located just below the bladder and surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis. The prostate gland produces some of the fluid that makes up semen. As men age, the prostate gland can gradually enlarge. This can cause urinary problems, such as a weak stream, a sense of urgency, and difficulty urinating. BPH is not cancer, and it does not increase a man’s risk of developing prostate cancer. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found in many tissues, including the bone marrow, fat, and skin. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into many different types of cells, including bone, cartilage, and fat cells. MSCs have been shown to be effective in treating a number of diseases and conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. In addition, MSCs can be used to repair tissue damage caused by injury or disease. MSCs are a promising new treatment for BPH. In a small study, MSCs were injected into the prostate gland of men with BPH. The men who received MSCs had a significant reduction in urinary symptoms and an improvement in urinary function. MSCs are a promising new treatment for BPH, and further research is needed to determine their safety and efficacy.
