Due to the fact that the urethra (urethra - lat.Urethra) passes through the center of the prostate, and prostate tissue in adenoma grows inside the gland, there is a possibility that the urethra may be completely or partially pinched, which causes complaints associated with urination ... Complaints only occur when the prostate enlarges so much that the muscles in the bladder are no longer able to push urine through the narrowed urethra. The stream of urine becomes weaker and the man needs more time and effort to start urinating, false urge to urinate is also possible.
Symptoms of prostate adenoma
In order to pump all urine from the bladder through the urethra compressed by the prostate gland, the muscle tissues of the bladder must additionally work, but they do not always cope well with this, which leads to the accumulation of large amounts of residual urine in the bladder. Subsequently, unpleasant diseases such as inflammation of the bladder, ureters and kidney problems may occur. 50% of men over 50 have urinary complaints. This is a characteristic sign of prostatic hyperplasia:
Difficulty (or impossible) holding urine
Weak urine stream
Little amount of urine when urinating
It takes time to start urinating
A burning sensation when urinating
Cloudy urine or blood in the urine
Leakage after urination
Feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder
Frequent nighttime urge to urinate
