Enlarged Prostate

Enlarged Prostate

The prostate gland produces the fluid that carries sperm during ejaculation. As the prostate enlarges, which happens to almost all men as they get older, it can press on the urethra (the tube that empties urine from the bladder). This causes problems with urination.

An enlarged prostate can be treated based on the severity of your symptoms, the extent to which they affect your daily life, and the presence of any other medical conditions. Treatment options for prostate enlargement include “watchful waiting,” lifestyle changes, medication, or surgery.
