How To Overcome Prostate Enlargement That Has Been Chronic?
good morning, I want to ask about enlargement of the prostate which has become normal because of drug consumption.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. One of the diseases of the prostate that is characterized by benign enlargement is the condition of BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). BPH sufferers are usually men aged 60 years and over and are often characterized by symptoms of disturbance when urinating, can urine that is difficult to come out, need to push when urinating, weak urine flow or dripping, and urination that feels incomplete.
This condition is still unknown, but the factors that can increase the risk are aged over 60 years, lack of exercise, overweight, have heart disease and / or diabetes, often take high blood pressure medications, and have a history of similar complaints in family.
Regarding your question, there are various treatment options for BPH. It can be with drugs, can be with laser light, open surgery, or surgery using a device that is inserted with a pee hole. If you use drugs, then the medicine must be consumed continuously because for reasons that are still unclear, if the consumption of the drug is stopped, the prostate can get even bigger. Therefore if you feel disturbed by taking drugs, discuss with your urologist about the possibility of surgery, because the prostate that is operated on may not grow again.
Meanwhile, avoid consuming any drinks for up to 2 hours before going to bed, limit caffeine consumption, and avoid alcohol, maintain ideal body weight, manage stress properly, avoid smoking, not resist urination, regular exercise according to ability, and do not consume drugs in the form of anything without doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
