WELCOME TO THE PRESS ROOM
Nearly 65 percent of men age 50 and over have not seen a doctor about their symptoms that are continuously interrupting their lives including, frequent urination, decreased urine stream, difficulty or pain while urinating, or a feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder1.
Thank you for showing an interest in this misunderstood men’s health condition with the Back to Life Without Interruptions campaign. By providing information on BPH to men across the country, we can open a dialogue on this sometimes-embarrassing issue and help men realize that urinary problems are not things to be trivialized. According to Jean J.E. Bonhomme, MD, MPH, MHN Board of Directors and Founder National Black Men's Health Network, “About half of all men age 50 and older and as many as 90 percent of men 70 and older are affected by BPH. Many men remain undiagnosed because they often tolerate symptoms of BPH, associating them with the aging process. Recognizing the symptoms of this condition is so important to men because, if left untreated, they could be at risk for sexual dysfunction, bladder infections and kidney damage."

Medical experts and patients are available to share who want to tell their personal experiences with men who suffer in silence everyday.
