Hello Beta Rediana,
The prostate is a male gland located at the bottom of the bladder, in front of the rectum (the part before the anus), and covers the urethra (not palpated from the outside). The prostate helps produce semen. The normal size of the prostate is as big as a walnut. However, as we get older, the prostate will increase in size. Enlarged prostate can suppress the urethra until it appears difficult urinary complaints.
Symptoms of prostate enlargement can appear at different ages because prostate enlargement that occurs in each person is also different. Prostate enlargement is generally divided into 2 benign (benign prostate hyperplasia / BPH) or malignant (prostate cancer). Common symptoms of BPH include:
Frequent urination, the patient wants to continue urinating
Frequent urination at night, back and forth toilets to disrupt sleep
Weak urine shower
Must straining to start urinating
The urine that comes out drips
Feeling incomplete after urinating
In a state of prostate that is very large can arise complaints can not urinate at all or the presence of blood in the urine. In prostate cancer complaints that arise are generally the same, but the presence of blood in the urine, pain in the lower abdomen, defecation is more often found.
The diagnosis of prostate enlargement must be made by a doctor. You can consult with a urology specialist. The doctor will ask about your history of complaints (include in the score), do a physical examination (usually with a rectal toucher, insert a finger into the rectum through the anus to feel the enlargement of the prostate in front of him), and conduct investigations such as ultrasonography, blood PSA level tests, cystoscopy , or biopsy if needed. Handling BPH cases is generally by administering drugs (to help urinate) and surgery (TURP, prostatectomy, etc.). Complications that can arise from surgery such as bleeding, scarring formed in the urinary tract, surgical site infections, impotence, etc. However, this is very minimal due to better operating techniques and devices. In patients who cannot urinate at all, and have not yet had an operation or because they do not want to, for temporary treatment a urine catheter is placed. Urinary catheter placement can have side effects of infection or trauma to the urethra. Urinary tract infections can be characterized by fever, pain in the lower abdomen, the presence of blood in the catheter sac. If you experience this, you should take your father to see a doctor for treatment.
Prostate enlargement is inevitable. But the process can be slowed down by maintaining a good lifestyle, stopping smoking, maintaining an ideal body weight, and consumption of nutritious foods, especially those containing high fiber and protein.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
