events and introducing new ones," said MAFA president Anthony Fellow.

Since its inception in the 1950’s, the Monrovia Association of Fine Arts has been a 
Monrovia tradition whose continuing mission has been to cultivate local artistic talent 
through exhibitions, social and professional get-togethers and classes taught by creative 
professionals. It is a mission that MAFA carries on to this day.

are available for managing BPH, ranging from 
lifestyle modifications and medications to

5. **Awareness:** Increasing awareness

promoting early detection and appropriate

advice if they experience urinary symptoms,

as recommended by healthcare pro-viders.

In conclusion, understanding the symptoms, 
diagnosis, and treatment options for BPH 
is essential for promoting men's health and 
well-being. Timely intervention and effective 
management can help men maintain a good 
quality of life despite the challenges posed by 
this common prostate condition.
