Enlarged Prostate

The Prostate Gland is a male gland which is to the shape & size of Chestnut. It is located at the base of the bladder & around the beginning of the urethra.

Male reproductive organ

There are various kinds of disorders of the Prostate, the most famous hypertrophy or enlargement of the prostate gland & prostatis or inflammation of the prostate gland. 

An enlarged prostate means the gland has grown bigger. Prostate enlargement happens to almost all men as they get older.

An enlarged prostate is often called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is not cancer, and it does not raise your risk for prostate cancer.

Causes Of Enlarged Prostate


The actual cause of prostate enlargement is unknown. Factors linked to aging and changes in the cells of the testicles may have a role in the growth of the gland. Men who have had their testicles removed at a young age (for example, as a result of testicular cancer) do not develop BPH.

Also, if the testicles are removed after a man develops BPH, the prostate begins to shrink in size.

Some facts about prostate enlargement:
  • The likelihood of developing an enlarged prostate increases with age.
  • BPH is so common that it has been said all men will have an enlarged prostate if they live long enough.
  • A small amount of prostate enlargement is present in many men over age 40. More than 90% of men over age 80 have the condition.
  • No risk factors have been identified other than having normally functioning testicles.

Symptoms of benign prostate enlargement


The symptoms of benign prostate enlargement are caused by the enlarged prostate placing pressure on the bladder and urethra (which carries urine from the bladder to the penis).

  • This can affect urination in a number of ways. For example, it can:
  • make it difficult for you to start urinating
  • weaken the flow of urine or cause "stopping and starting"
  • cause you to strain to pass urine
  • cause you to need to urinate frequently
  • cause you to wake up frequently during the night to urinate
  • cause a sudden urge to urinate, which can result in urinary incontinence if you can't find a toilet quickly enough
  • cause you to not be able to empty your bladder fully
  • cause blood in the urine (haematuria)

In the later stages, benign prostate enlargement can cause urine retention and other complications such as bladder stones, bladder infections and kidney damage.
