Benign Prostatic Enlargment, also known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a very common condition affecting nearly all men as part of the male ageing process.

 

The prostate is normally 20-30ccs when a man is in his 20s or 30s.  It is naturally the shape of a ring-doughnut with the bladder emptying and the urine passing through the middle of the ring-doughnut.  As the prostate enlarges, the hole through the middle of the prostate becomes smaller, obstructing the flow of urine and obstructing the natural emptying of the bladder.

 

It is important to also consider that lower urinary tract symptoms in a man are most commonly due to benign prostatic enlargement but can also be a sign of prostate cancer.

 

Prostate cancer is assessed via blood test (PSA) plus an examination by a consultant or experienced doctor.  If there are any concerns about these then a consultant urologist would organise a multi-parametric MRI scan of the prostate.  If you have any concerns in this regard please do not hesitate to contact us here at the Forbury Clinic and we can put you in contact with Mr Philip Charlesworth or Mr Adam Jones, consultant urological surgeons with a sub-specialty interest in prostate cancer, diagnosis and treatment.
