ការរីកនៃក្រពេញប្រូស្តាត ឬ បញ្ហាជាមួយនឹងការបន្ទោរទឹកមូត្រ (Prostate enlargement or troubles with the waterworks)




Prostate enlargement or troubles with the waterworks are often not life threatening, but the symptoms can have a major effect on quality of life.


Here are six secrets you need to know about that elusive male reproductive gland:

1. The prostate is a small but important gland in the male reproductive system.
The main role of the prostate is to make fluid that protects and feeds sperm.

2. In young men, the prostate is about the size of a walnut and it gets bigger as men get older.

At puberty, testosterone levels in boys start to increase and the prostate grows to about eight times its size. It continues to grow, doubling in size between the ages of 21 and 50 years, and almost doubles again in size between the ages of 50 and 80 years.

3. Prostate enlargement or BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) is the most common prostate disease.
Prostate enlargement usually starts after the age of 40 years and is more common in older men. Many men will be affected at some time in their lives.

4. The growth of the prostate relies on testosterone (male sex hormone).
It is known that prostate enlargement only happens when testosterone, which is made in the testes, is present.

5. Some men do not have any symptoms even though their prostate has grown larger.

The men who do have symptoms of BPH usually notice changes to their urination. As the prostate surrounds the top part of the urethra, enlargement of the prostate makes the urethra narrower and puts pressure on the base of the bladder. If the prostate grows too large, it can slow or stop the flow of urine.
