I am 79 with minor urine slowdown and enlarged prostate

by Barry P Fletcher
(Aspen and Singapore)

QUESTION: I have a minor urine slowdown. My urologist says my prostate is a bit enlarged. He has not suggested anything.

I want to ensure I wont have problems later. My Father had to have a urgent operation and was dignosed with Cancer of the prostrate when he was 80. He died at 85.

I can afford anything. I really want to avoid surgery and its side effects.

Is it not better to get action NOW?

ANSWER: Hi Barry,

The urine slowdown appears as a result of changes in the prostate gland, which are characterized by a prostate enlargement. When we are talking about an enlarged prostate, please be informed that there exist several reasons for the enlargement.

  • The first reason is related to the increase of the number and the size of the cell in prostate, a condition known as BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia).

    This appears as a result of the hormonal changes in your organism. Furthermore, this condition does not cause any damages to your organism, and there are several options you can try to remove it.

    With regards to BPH treatment, drugs, herbs and operation (operations are executed when the sized of the prostate is about 10-15 bigger than the normal) are the major options.

    The drugs used for the prostate enlargement are prescribed only by doctor, because they are having an effect on the cardio-vascular system.

    The most common herbs used for the prostate enlargement treatment are Saw Palmetto and pygeum.

    In addition, several exercises can be used to alleviate the symptoms, also called Kegel exercises. They are very good at improving the condition of your urinary system; however, they can’t reduce
    the size of the prostate gland.

    You have to know that around 40% of the people above 60 are suffering from prostate enlargement.

  • Another reason for the urine slowdown is the Bacterial prostatitis. This is an inflammatory process which develops in the prostate, but the urine slowdown is not the only symptom.

    There are other symptoms like pain in the bladder and in the penis, blood in the urine and in the semen and others.

    With regards to the treatment, antibiotics are the drugs of choice, which can eliminate the bacteria, consequently disappearing the symptoms.

  • The third reason for urine slowdown is the prostate cancer. This condition is pretty dangerous, because the cancer can damage the whole organism, including the liver, the lungs and sometimes the brains.

    You have to know that development of cancer tissue (coming from the prostate) in other parts of the body is observed only in the advanced stages of the prostate cancer.

    When the cancer is diagnosed in the early stages, you don’t have to worry about this, because everything finishes with operation and radiotherapy.

  • Now, coming to your concern. If your doctor hasn’t embarked any actions against the enlargement of your prostate until now, that means that you don’t have to worry about.

    However, if you want to take care about the condition of your prostate gland, you can execute the Kegel exercises and to start using the most suitable herbs for your condition.

    They can be found in any drug store, and, if you want to be sure, you can discuss with your doctor about your decision on starting to use these herbs.

    Many patients have had success in using these herbs, confirming an improvement in their urine flow and preventing the urine retention.

    Hope it helped!
