Do you know what a prostate gland is? Let's first understand... 

What is an enlarged prostate?

The prostate gland, shaped like a walnut is found in men and located just below the bladder. It surrounds the top portion of the urethra, the tube that drains urine from the bladder. The prostate's job is to make the seminal fluid, the fluid in your sperms which helps to nourish and transport them.

Living with enlarged prostate can create the following symptoms:

  • Feeling a frequent and urgent need to pee

  • Nocturia or waking up multiple times in the night to pee

  • Finding it difficult to start urination

  • Weak urine stream or a stream that stops and starts

  • Dribbling at the end of urination

  • Not being able to completely empty the bladder

Can Enlarged Prostate Be Cured?

The prostate goes through two spurts of growth. When a male reaches puberty, the prostate grows double its size. When a male reaches around 25 years of age, the prostate starts growing again and continues to do so throughout an adult male’s life.

Problems arise when it grows too much. It can lead to symptoms or in other cases, complications.

BPH is very common in men who are over fifty years of age. BPH, short for benign prostatic hyperplasia is the enlargement of the prostate. The cells of the prostate gland start to multiply. These extra cells cause your prostate gland to swell. It squeezes the urethra, limiting its function of letting urine pass through it. What is BPH treatment? Let us see.
