Enlarged Prostate (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Your condition may improve, remain the same, or become worse. Serious urinary problems from prostate enlargement affect one in 10 older men. If the bladder is permanently damaged from prostate enlargement, treatment may not be as effective.
Prostate enlargement is not cancer, nor does it seem to increase your chances of developing prostate cancer. You can, however, have both prostate enlargement and prostate cancer at the same time.
