Prostate Enlargement: Symptoms and Diagnosis
Prostate enlargement, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), often manifests with urinary symptoms such as increased frequency, urgency, and difficulty in initiating or maintaining a steady stream. Patients may experience a sensation of incomplete bladder emptying, leading to the need for frequent trips to the bathroom. Nocturia, or waking up at night to urinate, is a common symptom associated with prostate enlargement, impacting the quality of sleep. A weakened urinary stream and straining during urination are indicative of the obstructive effects of an enlarged prostate on the urethra. Diagnosis often involves a digital rectal examination, where a healthcare provider assesses the size and consistency of the prostate gland through the rectum. Blood tests, such as the PSA test, help measure levels of a protein produced by the prostate, aiding in the diagnosis and monitoring of prostate conditions. Transrectal ultrasound may be used to visualize the prostate, providing detailed images that aid in assessing the size and structure of the gland. In some cases, a cystoscopy may be recommended to directly visualize the interior of the urethra and bladder, providing additional information for diagnosis and treatment planning. Early detection and proper management can help alleviate symptoms and improve the quality of life for individuals with prostate enlargement.
