Adenoma of the prostate - a benign tumor of the prostate, also called BPH - benign hyperplasia (enlargement) of the prostate gland.
Due to hormonal changes, about a third of men over 40 have an enlarged prostate gland. Adenoma of the prostate in men begins to develop actively after 50 years, every second man of this age is diagnosed with adenoma of the prostate gland.
Due to the fact that the urethra (urethra - lat.Urethra) passes through the center of the prostate, and prostate tissue with 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, and 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 tissue of the bladder must additionally work, but do not always cope well with this, which leads to the accumulation of a large amount 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) to hold urine
- Weak urine stream
- Frequent urination
- 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
