Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlarged prostate with benign nature. The prevalence of this disease in different age groups is uneven: the disease is usually diagnosed after reaching 40-50 years of age, about 80-90% of men of 60 years of age have an enlarged prostate gland. Over 50 % of men turn to the doctor for benign prostatic hyperplasia in connection with the affiliated problems with urination. Currently the pharmaceutical market has a wide selection of medications to control the clinical manifestations of hyperplasia of prostate. One of the popular drugs is Proscar tablets.
Proscar is a drug with antiandrogenic effect. The active ingredient of the medication (finasteride) belongs to the pharmacological group of competitive inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase. The specified enzyme converts the male sex hormone testosterone to the more active steroid dihydrotestosterone. High concentration of DHT is the main factor in the progressive enlargement of the prostate. Finasteride slows the disease progression and even leads to a reduction of prostate volume, reducing the number of active androgen.
