  • Treatment for Enlarged Prostate – No Reason for Worry

    By Jenele L. Gower

    The prostate is a small walnut shaped gland in men which is responsible for the production of the seminal fluid that carries forward the sperm cells during ejaculation. The prostate surrounds the urethra which is the channel through which the urine flows out of the body from the bladder. As a man ages, the prostate cells begin to multiply with each passing year, resulting in a gradual growth in size of the prostate. As the prostate becomes larger, it begins to put pressure on the urethra and narrows down the channel. When the urethra narrows down, the bladder has to contract with greater force to push the urine out of the body. Over time, this regular, increased contraction of the bladder makes the bladder muscles stronger, thicker and extra sensitive and the bladder begins to contract even when there is minimal amount of urine accumulated in it, giving rise to the need for frequent urination. Simultaneously, in spite of its increased efforts, the bladder is not able to overcome the impact of the narrowed size of the urethra and so the bladder is unable to empty itself out completely causing discomfort to the body. This condition is known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or what is commonly known as an enlarged prostate.  Read..
