It surrounds the urethra, which is the tube that allows urine to pass out of the body. Enlargement of the prostate gland often occurs in men over the age of 40. This is called as hyperplasia. Since hyperplasia can be troublesome and annoying, it is not life threatening like prostate cancer. Because it is usually not dangerous, it called benign prostate hyperplasia or simply BPH. Warning signs include the following. 1. Slowness or dribbling of your urinary stream 2. Hesitancy, delay, or difficulty starting to urinate 3. Frequency: the duration between two bathroom visits can constantly reduce, with the constant urge to urinate 4. Feeling of urgency or sudden need to urinate 5. Need to get up at night to urinate. 6. Men with BPH never have a feeling of complete emptying of the bladder. As the prostate grows larger with time, someone with BPH may also experience these symptoms. 7. Bladder stones. 8. Bladder infection. 9. Blood in your urine. 10. Damage to your kidneys from back pressure caused by retaining large amounts of extra urine in the bladder. 11. There could be blockage of urine completely, if the enlargement is big enough. Sudden blockage makes urination impossible.
