Prostate BPH

Prostate BPH


Prostate Enlargement

Prostate enlargement medically is known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) a non – cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland.

The prostate gland is located beneath the bladder. The tube that moves urine from the bladder out of the penis is called the urethra and his tube passes through the center of the prostate. When the prostate gets bigger, it starts to block urine flow. The normal prostate volume is less than 30 centimeters

The prostate is a gland that typically keeps growing throughout life and this growth often enlarges the prostate enough to cause symptoms or to block urine flow.

It isn’t clear what causes the prostate to get bigger. It might be due to changes in the balance of sex hormones as you grow older.

It commonly affects men as they age from the age of 45 years and above causing a wide range of symptoms

  • Frequent urination mostly at night
  • Unable to control urine
  • Incomplete Bladder Emptying
  • Urine stream that starts and stops
  • Difficulty in starting to urinate
  • Straining to Urinate
  • A weak or slow of urine
  • Involuntary Urination

Risk factors for an enlarged prostate include:

  • Aging. An enlarged prostate gland rarely causes symptoms before age 40. After that, the chance of having an enlarged prostate and related symptoms starts to rise.
  • Family history. Having a blood relative with prostate problems makes you more likely to have problems with your prostate.
  • Diabetes and heart disease. Studies show that diabetes might raise the risk of BPH. So might heart disease.
  • Lifestyle. Obesity raises the risk of BPH. Exercise can help lower the risk.
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs). Not being able to fully empty the bladder can raise the risk of infection in the urinary tract. 
  • Bladder stones. These are most often caused by being unable to fully empty the bladder. Bladder stones can cause illness, bladder irritation, blood in the urine and blocked urine flow.
  • Bladder damage. A bladder that doesn't empty fully can stretch and weaken over time. As a result, the muscular wall of the bladder no longer squeezes properly to force urine out. And this makes it harder to fully empty the bladder.
  • Kidney damage. Pressure in the bladder from not being able to pee can damage the kidneys or let bladder infections reach the kidneys.

The following tests can be done:

  • Abdominal ultrasound scan
  • Prostate Specific Antigen (Blood Test to rule out prostate cancer)
  • Prostate Histopathology
