Can enlarged prostate be fixed?

I have an enlarged prostate. Is it serious? Can enlarged prostate be fixed?

1 Answer

Enlarged prostate is a common condition for men as we get older. Often first signs may be decreased urine stream, frequent urination need, difficulty initiating urination, or dribbling. Symptoms are related to the enlarged prostate blocking the urine channel that empties from your bladder. If untreated, can cause bladder issue over time or result in acute blockage of ability to empty your bladder. Can be treated with medications early and surgical treatments for more severe conditions.
