Desun Today : March 2016 - PROSTATE PROBLEMS


Prostate problems are very common in men above 50. Like Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, which means the prostate is enlarged, but not cancerous….


What is Prostate?

The prostate is a gland about the size of a walnut. It is part of the male reproductive system and wraps around the tube that carries urine out of the bladder. It grows larger with age. If the prostate is too large, it can cause health issues. Having prostate problems does not always mean it is cancerous.


Signs of a prostate problem

  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Need to get up many times during the night to urinate
  • Blood in urine or semen
  • Painful or burning urination
  • Not being able to urinate
  • Painful ejaculation
  • Frequent pain or stiffness in lower back, hips, pelvic or rectal area, or upper thighs
  • Dribbling of urine

Some Common Prostate Problems

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Medications : Sometimes medicines can help to shrink the prostate and relax the muscles near the prostate to ease the symptoms.

Surgery : When a medication doesn’t work, surgery is suggested to help urine flow. There are various types of BPH surgery. Regular checkups are important after surgery.

Other treatments : Radio waves, microwaves, or lasers are sometimes used to treat urinary problems caused by BPH. These methods use different kinds of heat to reduce extra prostate tissue.
