Brendan Grace launches public awareness campaign

Brendan Grace recently launched a new public awareness campaign targeting men over the age of 50 who need to take regular toilet trips during the night to coincide with Men’s Health Awareness Week, which ran from June 15-22. Having to go to the toilet more than once a night is an early symptom of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition that is caused by an enlarged prostate. While this is a benign and non-life threatening condition, if left untreated, the prostate can continue to grow, leading to a worsening of symptoms.  An estimated one-third of Irish men in their 60s can expect to experience urinary symptoms related to BPH, which can have an impact on normal daily activities and quality of life.
