Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Symptoms

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) also known as benign prostatic hypertrophy (technically a misnomer), benign enlargement of the prostate (BEP), and adenofibromyomatous hyperplasia, refers to the increase in size of the prostate. Normal size of prostate is about 4*3*2cm. Prostate enlargement is a common part of aging.

There are two kinds of symptoms when people get BPH not for a long time: bladder irritation and obstruction in urinary tract.

Bladder irriattion symptoms: urgent urinate, frequent urinate, getting up at night and urgent uracratia. Frequent urinate is the sign of BPH, while getting up at night are clinical symptoms. Generally, if advanced people who used to never get up at night get up 1 to 2 times per night to urinate, that could be a sign of getting the disease. If they get up 4 to 5 times and even more times at night, it means their disease aggravates.

Obstruction in urinary tract symptoms:

1 Weak urine flow, acraturesis, drips after urinate: because of the obstruction in enlarged prostate, more strength is needed when urinating. Enlarged prostate would press on the urinary tract so the flow is weaker. As the disease progresses, urinate blocking and drips after urinate would occur.

2 Blood in urine: there is blood in urine. In normal cases, there is no red blood cells in urine. As the urine is centrifugated and precipitated, if there are more than 5 red blood cells in urine in high power field, it shows blood in urine.

3 Uroschesis: people who have severe BPH or high stage BPH, they risk for uroschesis if they catch a cold, drink alcohol or hold their urine for a long time.

Complications of BPH includes acute urinary tract infection, hydronephrosis, uremia, and some others such as blood in semen and change of libido.

More and more younger people get this disease now. Doctors may misdiagnose it as chronic prostatitis because of their similar symptoms. Younger patients often have some neural symptoms such as dizziness, anxiety, being irritable, memory and sexual function loss. They seldom get up over 2 times at night.
