Enlarged Prostate

What is BPH?
The medical community has a name for enlarged prostate that you should know; Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).  BPH is an enlarged prostate gland.

An enlarged prostate isn’t something to ignore. In fact, the prostate gland is nothing to ignore. If you don’t get it checked, you run the risk of cancer.

Enlarged Prostate: BPHAge you age, if your prostate becomes enlarged over time, its presence will make itself known in the form of urination issues; changes in your urination habits. It may begin as seemingly low-pressure urination –even though your bladder is full. Often, you may have noticed, it is a waiting game. You show up in the bathroom to urinate and are unable to do so without delay.

This often occurs in older males due to the fact that the prostate does continue to grow. It is also believed that changes in the sex hormones for males that occurs as they age can also trigger the prostate to get larger. It is rare that males under the age of 40 will have such issues. Most males that are affected are between the ages of 55 and 75. Some men notice a change in urinary habits as early as their fortieth year


Males with a family history of enlarged prostate problems, including prostate cancer, are at a higher risk. Males that are from certain locations also seem to be at a higher risk. Males that live in America and Australia have the highest risk of experiencing prostate problems.

BPH Symptoms

Not only can it be very painful for a man, but it can also be an indicator of something very serious. Early intervention and treatment can make a huge difference. Pain and a noticeable swelling of the prostate are the main symptoms that are experienced. Some other symptoms that shouldn’t be ignored include:

• Increased frequency to urinate
• Not much urine when you go
• Feel like the bladder is still full after urinating
• Dark colored urine

If you ignore such symptoms, it can create a blockage for the normal process of expelling urine from the body. As a result, bacteria can develop in the body. This can result in urinary tract infections and kidney infections. If you have any such symptoms, you need to consult with your doctor as soon as possible.

Annual physical exams may uncover an abnormal prostate. This early intervention can help with resolving the problem before it gets too painful. To examine prostate, the doctor must probe the rectum with his gloved finger to feel if the surface area has any change in texture. He is looking for bumps or other abnormalities –which may be a flag for cancer.

It is important to note that an enlarged prostate is not necessarily cancerous and not necessarily painful. It is two different problems. The enlarged healthy prostate may possibly be treated to reduce the size.

The chances of a full recovery from prostate cancer are better if that is caught and treated in the very early stages. Too many males do not seek (or consciously avoid) oral examination of the prostate. By the time symptoms are displayed, it may be too late for an easy solution.

Treatment options will vary depending on various factors. Treatment often includes changing lifestyle habits and medication. Sometimes, surgery is necessary to resolve the problem. If cancer cells in the prostate are detected, then chemotherapy and radiation following surgery may be options, as well.

    Hi –

    I was starting to slow down when urinating at about 40.
    I didn’t know if I should be concerned or not.
    I’m a little older now and it has only gotten worse. No pain -just inconvenient.
    Sometimes I think there is nothing like a good piss!

    Thanks for the info.

      Yes. i agree. Nothing like it.
      There is usually no way I can be in a hurry anymore, unless it’s really urgent.
      That’s the only time it doesn’t make me wait.

      Thanks for the note, Andy.

    I have been diagnosed with BPH (an enlarged prostrate) for about 5 years now. I had very severe pain that forced me to go to the emergency room because it exacerbated a bladder infection. The prostrate was very painful and I needed to take Percocet for a few days while it healed up. The pain from the prostrate was still there and I suffered through it for a few more years. The doctors gave me different medications to take. Some would work for a while and some were somewhat effective, but the pain and discomfort were still there. I woke up at different times during the night to empty my bladder, but it never quite felt like I was really emptying it fully. I was constantly tired from lack of sleep. I would have to go to the bathroom 2 or 3 times an hour at work. It was becoming really embarassing to say the least. I finally started to search the internet for a cure. Then I found Dr Max Powers Prostate Supplement. I knew that the ingredients were all natural and effective, so I decided to take a chance on it. I was ready to try anything because I just wanted to get rid of the pain and constant discomfort.
    I felt such a great relief from the pain and discomfort, I found it hard to believe. I though that I had to wait for it to build up in my system for a few months. I was wrong! The Dr Max Powers Prostate Supplement only took 2 days to start working and a feeling of great comfort swept over me. I can empty my bladder fully now and I get a full night’s sleep now.
