Others experience pain during urination and after ejaculation. To treat benign prostate hyperplasia, you must first confirm that you have it. Read below to see if you have the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.

The Red Flags of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia 

Difficulty Starting a Stream

The excess growth acts as a blockade, stopping the urine from fully leaving your bladder, despite your urge to void. The excess growth pushing against the prostate also hinders your ability to urinate fully, only allowing some urine out at a time. Thus, you may feel the need to constantly go to the restroom, even though nothing or little urine is being emptied out.

Incessant Urination

The average person will urinate six to eight times within 24 hours. In other words, you should have to use the restroom once every two to four hours. Yet, people who have an enlarged prostate will urinate eight or more times a day. Having to empty your bladder more than usual is a telling sign that you may have an enlarged prostate. You’ll need to empty your bladder more frequently because you have difficulty getting a full stream.

Urinary Incontinence

Most men who have this condition will experience a weakened control of their bladder. The extra tissues pushing against your urethra and bladder tends to trigger involuntary urinary dribbling that you cannot stop. Some people with this condition will bring an extra pair of pants to work due to the incontinence. Also, you may feel compelled to wear adult diapers.
