Signs and symptoms of an Enlarged Prostate

Although the cause of an enlarged prostate is still unknown, it's not impossible to find out if you have one. Normal prostate glands are about the same size as those plane peanuts. As the prostate grows, it will inevitably squeeze the urethra. This then causes the urethra to narrow. The bladder will feel compelled to push urine through the urethra with greater force, which can lead to a desire to frequent the Little Boy's Room more often. The bladder may become more upset at the extra credit it is being given and may eventually stop being able to empty its bladder completely.

If the bladder gets really upset, patients with prostate problems may develop acute urinary retention. This is a complete stoppage of urination. This is a serious condition that should be treated immediately by a healthcare professional.

You should be aware of these signs:

* Leakage of urine

* Inability to empty the bladder

* Regular trips to the toilet, especially at bedtime

* It is difficult to urinate

An enlarged prostate is a sign of danger. If you experience difficulty urinating, nausea, fever, chills, or lower back pain, it's time for a doctor.
