Enlargement of the prostate is called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It occurs when the cells of the prostate gland begin to multiply. These additional cells cause your prostate gland to swell, which squeezes the urethra and limits the flow of urine. BPH is not the same as prostate cancer and doesn’t increase the risk of cancer. However, it can cause symptoms that can affect your quality of life. BPH is common in men 40, 50 years and above.
What Cause enlargement of the prostate?
In men, urine flows from the bladder through the urethra. BPH is a benign (noncancerous) enlargement of the prostate that blocks the flow of urine through the urethra. The prostate cells gradually multiply, creating an enlargement that puts pressure on the urethra — the “chute” through which urine and semen exit the body.
As the urethra narrows, the bladder has to contract more forcefully to push urine through the body. Over time, the bladder muscle may gradually become stronger, thicker, and overly sensitive; it begins to contract even when it contains small amounts of urine, causing a need to urinate frequently. Eventually, the bladder muscle cannot overcome the effect of the narrowed urethra so urine remains in the bladder and it is not completely emptied.
- incomplete bladder emptying
- nocturia, which is the need to urinate two or more times per night
- dribbling at the end of your urinary stream
- incontinence, or leakage of urine
- the need to strain when urinating
- a weak urinary stream
- a sudden urge to urinate
- a slowed or delayed urinary stream
- painful urination
- blood in the urine
Why you should care about your prostate health?
When the urethra becomes ‘squashed’ by the prostate gland, it has to work harder, and contract more vigorously to push the urine out of the bladder. Because it is working so hard, the bladder muscle may become stronger, thicker, and more sensitive over time. It will think it needs to contract even when there is a tiny amount of urine in the bladder. The truth is, though, that doctors don’t really know what causes an enlarged prostate.
All they do is try to curb the symptoms, which could be attributed to how the cells communicate via their signaling pathways, or the release of certain chemical hormones in the body such as estrogen. The only ‘cures’ for an enlarged prostate offered by modern medicine include medications or surgery, or both. This is because doctors don’t know the underlying cause, and therefore cannot address it.
