Symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Since the prostate is just below the urinary bladder, its enlargement can result in symptoms that irritate or obstruct the bladder. Common symptoms of BPH include-

  • Weak urine stream.
  • Dribbling after urination.
  • Frequent urination, particularly at night (i.e. nocturia).
  • Feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder.
  • Hesitancy - leakage of urine (i.e. overflow incontinence).
  • Inability to postpone urination once there is an urge to urinate
  • Straining or pushing to begin urination.
  • Blood in the urine (i.e. hematuria) caused by straining.
