What Men Should Know About Prostrate Enlargement

According to Healthline, prostate enlargement, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is a common condition among older men. As men advance in age, the prostate can enlarge, which can cause a variety of symptoms. However, here are some important things men should know about prostate enlargement.

According to studies, prostate enlargement can cause some symptoms, including frequent urination, weak urine stream, difficulty starting or stopping urination, urinary urgency, and feeling like the bladder is not completely empty. However, age is the primary risk factor for prostate enlargement. Others include a family history of prostate problems, obesity, and some medications. Prostate enlargement is typically diagnosed through a physical exam and a prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test. Your doctor may also order additional tests, such as a urine flow test or ultrasound. Mild cases may be managed with lifestyle changes, such as exercising regularly.

However, there is no guaranteed way to prevent prostate enlargement, but maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help reduce your risk.
