What Are Treatment Options for an Enlarged Prostate?
Once the diagnosis of prostate enlargement is made, your doctor may not recommend immediate treatment if symptoms are mild. Likely, one or more exams will be conducted per year to be sure that you are not developing any complications from prostate enlargement. Should your symptoms become more severe, both medical and surgical treatments are available.
Are There Home Remedies for an Enlarged Prostate?
Some precautions can help to avoid worsening of symptoms of prostate enlargement and complications.
Do not delay urination once you experience an urge. Urinate as soon as you feel the urge, and empty the bladder completely.
