What are the symptoms of BPH

An enlarged prostate can cause a variety of symptoms. Some are referred to as obstructive/voiding symptoms and include weak stream, hesitancy of voiding, intermittent stream, a sensation of incomplete bladder emptying, and terminal dribbling. Storage/irritative symptoms include frequent urination, nocturia (getting up at night to urinate), and urgency, the sudden compelling need to urinate that is difficult to defer. These storage symptoms are overactive bladder symptoms.

Other conditions that may be a sign of prostatic enlargement are urinary retention or the inability to void, urinary tract infection, urinary incontinence, and hematuria or blood in the urine.

It is important to acknowledge that bladder dysfunction can either mimic or contribute to some of these symptoms, and the physician must consider these when a diagnosis of prostatic enlargement is made.
