For the first time, I had difficulty in passing urine at 3.30 AM. Next day morning I was diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) through ultra sound.

My enlarged prostate was discovered by prostate care at 5.40. An enlarged prostate means the gland has grown bigger. Prostate enlargement happens to almost all men, as they get older.

Comment from: Sethpal Rawal, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: May 16

I have a severe pain in lower abdomen after passing urine. It has continued happening last 5 days. When I passed urine, after 5 to 10 minutes the pain starts from my testicles and go up to the lower part of abdomen and pain starts on my backside (complete back). I am worried if my prostate is enlarged.
