Prostate Gland enlarged with the men’s age and this enlargement medically termed as “Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia” or BPH. Enlarged prostate gland mainly blocks the flow of urine. If you are experience difficulty during the time of urination then it may be due to enlarged prostate. It is a complex problem among old aged men in which they are dealing with urinating problems. Well, prostate is a smaller muscular gland found in the male reproductive region of the body. Bigger prostate gland suppresses the urethra tube which carries both semen and urine. Limited or no flow of the urine and semen is mainly occurred due to the squeeze of urethra. During the sexual intercourse, this tube helps male reproductive organ to propel the fluid and semen.

Multiplication of the prostate cells put the extra pressure on the urethra tube that carries urine and semen. Here I am going to explain about the common symptoms associated with the BPH or enlarged prostate.
Frequent or urgent urination
Difficulty in urination
Lots of pain during ejaculation or urination
Unusual color or smell (Urine with blood)
Infection in urinary tract
Bladder stones (incomplete bladder empting)
Frequently urination during night
These are the common symptoms that experienced by men after the age of 50’s due to the enlargement of prostate gland. Remember incomplete bladder emptying increases the risk of urinary tract infection. There are many other health complications associated with the urination problems like bladder stones and blood in urine.
In most of BPH cases, men never seek medical help until they face sleeping problem due to the frequent urination. It is always hard for the victims to know the reasons behind urinary problems. So it is necessary to immediately approach professional doctors to diagnose problem linked with frequent urination. The medical treatment depends upon your medical history, age, size of prostate gland and overall health. Mainly doctors take decision for the treatment of enlarged prostate symptoms after the identification of causes. Men always want immediate relief from the symptoms BPH and for that doctors may prescribe drugs. The best treatment for enlarged prostate is surgery but it also has more risks than other medical treatments. It all depends upon your physician, so wisely choose your doctors in case of enlarged prostate gland treatment. I will recommend you to start treatment with drugs, if there is no improvement then you may go with surgery option. There are many drugs in the market that clinically tested and approved by the FDA to diagnose the symptoms of enlarged prostate. But these drugs are prescribed by the physicians that reduce or control the growth of prostate gland. Some time your doctors may prescribe you alpha blockers for the smooth flow of urine. Alpha blockers are quickly provided relieve from the symptoms but these medicines never reduce the size of prostate gland.

Enlarged prostate gland and erectile dysfunction grow with the age but one cause problem during sexual intercourse and other in the bathroom.
