What Is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)?
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is a benign condition where the prostate gets enlarged. The condition is very common in older men. Even though the condition is often linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer, it is in fact harmless (as the name suggests). In fact, the risk is equal for both men with an enlarged prostate and those without.
Still, BPH does cause a myriad of unpleasant symptoms that affect the urinary tract. The prostate gland is located between the bladder and the penis, which is why it may cause some issues if it gets enlarged. The symptoms include trouble urinating, frequent need to urinate, trouble fully emptying the bladder, and urine stream problems.
Some men with BPH do not even notice any symptoms and they don’t get the issue diagnosed for a while. Others experience symptoms that directly affect their quality of life which is why they often opt in for BPH treatment.
What Causes Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?
Further studies need to be conducted to determine what causes BPH, but the condition is often linked to the aging process and hormone changes it brings. As men get older their hormone levels drop, similarly to what women experience when they reach menopause. This is likely what causes prostate enlargement.
Proper diagnosis is still recommended as BPH shares much of the same symptoms as prostate cancer. Therefore, your doctor will need to rule out any serious issues and determine whether the symptoms are caused by BPH or something else.
Find The Right Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Treatment?
Treatment of the condition will depend on the severity of the symptoms. If the symptoms are mild and do not affect you that much, you may be able to make a few lifestyle changes that will alleviate the symptoms.
However, if the symptoms are severe you may need to turn to medication that will help shrink the prostate and relax the bladder. Some of the commonly used treatments include Tamsulosin, Tabphyn, and Combodart.
Apart from treatment, there are certain lifestyle changes you can adopt to treat the symptoms of BPH such as limiting alcohol consumption, fizzy drinks and caffeine, exercising, and consuming fewer fluids in the evening.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Tamusolin MR?
Tamsulosin tablets belong to a group of medications known as alpha-blockers. Tamsulosin is used to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate or benign prostate hyperplasia and in some cases kidney stones.
The treatment is available as a prescription drug and can be purchased in most pharmacies in the form of tablets and capsules.
Make sure to consult your doctor after using the medicine for 6 weeks to see whether you should continue the treatment.
Tamsulosin helps alleviate the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. As the treatment relaxes the muscles of the bladder and the prostate, patients with BPH can urinate more easily and will not experience a sudden need to urinate both during the day or the night.
The treatment may cause dizziness in some patients. Make sure you are seated and wait for these side effects to pass.
What Is Combodart?
Combodart is a combination of Dutasteride and Tamsulosin used to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia or enlarged prostate ranging from moderate to severe. The treatment can reduce the risk of being unable to pass urine completely. This symptom is usually resolved through surgery.
The treatment contains two active ingredients, Dutasteride and Tamsulosin. Dutasteride can inhibit the production of the dihydrotestosterone hormone (DHT) which shrinks the prostate and alleviates some of the symptoms. Using this treatment may help prevent acute urinary retention and the necessary surgical resolution of the issue. On the other hand, Tamsulosin relaxes the muscles in the prostate gland. This helps urine freely pass.
What Are The Symptoms Of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?
When the prostate enlarges it squeezes the urethra, which can lead to various symptoms that progressively get more severe. Some of the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia include:
- Frequent or uncontrollable need to urinate
- Urinating multiple times at night
- Difficulty starting to or passing urine
- Leaking at the end of urination
- A weak stream of urine
- Trouble emptying the bladder
How Common Is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?
Benign Prostate Enlargement is a common condition linked to aging and affects men over 50 years old. Approximately 4 in 10 men over 50 (40%) as well as 3 in 4 men over the age of 70 (75%) experience the symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate.
How To Check If My Prostate Is Enlarged?
If you experience any of the symptoms listed above or if your doctor suspects you’re suffering from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia they will ask you a number of questions to determine if you are at risk.
This questionnaire works by giving you a list of questions, each with an assigned number of points indicating how severe your symptoms are.
The doctor will do the necessary tests to determine whether the symptoms are caused by BPH and not a similar condition. These involve urine and blood tests.
