A common problem in old males is retarded urine flow. There is difficulty in starting urination. Sometimes one has to wait a long time. Often, urine keeps dribbling after urinating. These are indications of Prostate Gland Enlargement.


What is BPH or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or Prostate Enlargement?

An old age problem that happens in almost all old males is prostate gland enlargement. It is also known as Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH). One needs to differentiate this enlargement from the cancerous type.

In BPH, there is no cancer. It is just a benign enlargement. Benign means that there is no evidence of cancer. It does not mean that it will not cause any symptoms.


What are the symptoms of Prostate Enlargement or BPH?

  • The prostatic enlargement impinges on the urethra. This causes the usual symptoms like frequency of urination and urgency of urination.
  • There is a feeble stream of urine.
  • One is unable to start urination.
  • There is dribbling of urination after finishing urination.
  • In some cases, there may be a complete inability to urinate. This is known as the retention of urine. It is often a dire situation. This requires immediate medical attention.
  • Pain may also be present in some patients though it is not always the case.
  • Some patients may report of burning sensation while urinating or after urinating.


Treatment of enlarged prostate gland or BPH

In the conventional system of medicine, the only available treatment option is surgery. The surgeons excise the enlarged part of the prostate during the surgery.

Most of the patients develop the same symptoms after some time. The symptoms for which the surgery was done usually come back sometime after the surgery.

This means that the surgery did not provide them with a lasting solution. Rather it turned out to be palliative. It provided relief for a short time only.
