Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia


Prostate Gland Enlargement
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Treatment

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: What Is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia? What Are The Causes For The Disease And How It Affects The Prostate? How It Is Diagnosed And What Are The Symptoms? The Treatment Options And Medications Along With The Side-Effects Associated.

In older men and men in their middle ages, sometimes there is abnormal growth in the prostate gland around the urethra. This might cause difficulty for those men in passing urine as the enlargement in prostate causes the urethra to collapse. This condition is often termed as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.

Also sometimes wrongly referred to as Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is rather a growth in the number of cells while Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy is growing size of the individual cells. There is hyperplasia in epithelial and prostatic stromal cells which results in a large and discrete nodular structure in the periurethra region near the prostate gland.

When it becomes quiet large, the enlarged nodules try compressing the urethral canal. hence obstructing the urethra partially or sometimes completely. This condition proves as interference in normal flowing of urine. The symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia include hesitancy in urine discharge, painful urination, frequent urination, an increase in the risk of getting infected in the urinary tract as well as urinary retention.

Although the prostate antigens might be elevated in such patients suffering from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia because of inflammation in the urinary tract and enlargement of the organ, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia not at all leads to cancer or increase cancer risks.

Symptoms and Signs

Classified as voiding or storage, the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia are detailed below.

Storage symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia are urgency (a compelling need to discharge urine that cannot be deferred), urinary frequency, voiding in the night and urgency incontinence.

Voiding symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia are hesitancy (a need to wait for the beginning of the stream), urinary stream, straining for voiding, and intermittency (stopping of the stream intermittently after starting).

Often Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and its conditions worsen if not treated timely. Many other severe conditions may arise in the urinary tract due to negligence.


Causes responsible for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Mostly the hormones like testosterone and other androgens are responsible for BPH syndrome. They might not directly be responsible for the condition but their presence is certain. Dihydrotestosterone, which is a metabolite belonging to testosterone is critically responsible for mediating prostatic growth.

Being synthesized in the gland of prostate by the circulation of testosterone caused by 5 alpha reductase enzyme, the main site for the synthesis of DHT are the stromal cells. 5 alpha reductase inhibitors are supposed to reduce the production of DHT and its conversion from testosterone. Hence natural extracts such as beta sitosterol and saw palmetto, also found in Endosterol, which is a 5 alpha reductase inhibitor, is highly beneficial in providing some relief and suppressing of the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.

Mostly Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is found in men in older ages and typically those who lead a western lifestyle as compared to men who lead a rural lifestyle. Though the reason why it depends on this cause is still being studied.

How is BPH diagnosed?

A useful method to diagnose the condition of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is by rectal examination. This is done by taking the tissue samples of the prostate gland by inserting a needle from the rectum.

Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by the epithelial cells of the prostate gland. It is usually present in semen of men, protecting the sperms. But sometimes it may also get absorbed by the blood vessels and travel in the blood. Hence blood tests can be done to investigate the PSA levels in a man. Men with higher PSA levels are at a greater risk of developing Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.

Often ultrasound examination is also performed of the prostate, testicles, and kidneys to check for malignant cancerous cells. The signs that are noted down include bladder pain, ejaculation problems, prolonged bladder emptying, abdominal straining, and inflammation during urination, urgency, frequent urination, hesitancy, weak urinary flow, etc.


Treatment options and medications

  • Some changes in your lifestyle can be helpful in relieving you with the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Decreasing fluid intake before sleeping and cutting down on the consumption of alcohol or caffeine related products can aid you a lot.

  • Managing Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is possible with medicines that are either alpha blockers or 5 alpha reductase inhibitors. Herbs like Beta sitosterol and saw palmetto along with other herbs can be highly beneficial in maintaining a balance of hormones in your body and providing you a healthy life. A supplement such as Endosterol which contains the above stated extracts is recommended to provide you an easy going and happy life!
