5 Symptoms of an Enlarged ProstateAs men grow older, there is one serious health problem that is more common than almost any other. It’s a condition that can take all the joy out of a man’s existence… And destroy his ability to function normally.

Half of men will face it by their 50s. Almost all will get it if they get to their 80s or beyond. But few are willing to talk about it. Perhaps out of embarrassment.

An enlarged prostate can rob a man of his sex life and his energy. It can stop him from sleeping night after night. It drains him of his confidence and can even make him afraid to go out in public.

That’s why it’s crucial every man knows the size of his prostate. Isn’t your future worth two minutes of your time? It’s easy and it’s free. Just click here.  

Here are five common signs of an enlarged prostate:

  1. Difficulty in starting to urinate[1]

The prostate gland begins growing when a man is in his 30s. Eventually it can become so swollen that it can close the urethra. That’s the duct through which urine passes. This makes it difficult—even impossible—for a man to start to urinate.

He may have to strain to empty his bladder. Sometimes he can’t do it at all… Even though he feels the urgent need to. This is the classic sign of an enlarged prostate.

  1. A weak urine stream

This is often one of the first symptoms of an enlarged prostate. The urine stream will suddenly be reduced. Or there may be repeated interruptions in the flow of urine.[2] This can be an early warning signal that worse problems are on the way.

  1. Incontinence[3]

This is one of the most dreaded symptoms of an enlarged prostate. It can make it difficult for a man to go out in public. He may have to wear adult diapers. Or he may have to use a bed pad. Often the condition is temporary. But it can be chronic.

Incontinence can make it difficult for a man to have a social life or the confidence for sexual relations. It is one of the most life-altering symptoms of an enlarged prostate.

  1. Sudden urgency to urinate[4]

A man may feel perfectly fine and suddenly he will instantly feel an intense need to urinate. Since there is no warning, it may be difficult to find a bathroom.

This can wreak havoc on a man’s lifestyle. They can find it difficult to go places where a restroom is not easily accessible. Long car rides may be out of the question.

  1. Frequent awakening at night to urinate[5]

Many men with an enlarged prostate find they have to get up three or four times a night to go to the bathroom. This means they never get a good night’s sleep. They may fall asleep only to be quickly awakened by the need to urinate.

This means they never get the deep sleep necessary for sharp mental functioning. They may find themselves exhausted and nodding off during the day.
