The prostate is a type of gland that produces fluid to make semen, located just below the bladder. The prostate gland is an essential part of the male reproductive system. 


Only men have prostates.


What happens when the prostate grows?


Prostate enlargement is clinically known as benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). 

The prostate is located right below your bladder and in front of the rectum, with the urethra passing through. 


When the prostate grows, it squeezes the urethra and restricts the flow of urine, leading to urinary problems. Some men experience weak urine flow, frequent urination, and an inability to hold the urge to pass urine. These issues can hamper their quality of life.


These symptoms worsen as the prostate size gradually increases.


When will the prostate start to grow?


Starting at age 25, your prostate size gradually increases throughout your life! 

No wonder people with an enlarged prostate are older. 84.3% of men 40 years old and older experience lower urinary tract symptoms.


On average, a young man’s prostate is about the size of a walnut or a golf ball. As they age, they gradually grow to a size of a ping-pong ball. In older men, it continues to grow to the size of a tennis ball or larger!


Why does it grow?


The actual cause of prostate enlargement is unknown. Even scientists are still figuring out why the prostate gland keeps growing. Scientists have linked prostate enlargement to changes in the balance of sex hormones as men age. For example, men who have had testicles removed do not develop prostate enlargement.


Prostate enlargement is linked to a normal process of ageing. 7 out of 10 men are suffering from an enlarged prostate.

Most experts recommend a prostate exam every 3 to 5 years. Prostate enlargement is not something that you can entirely prevent from happening. However, you can prevent your prostate enlargement from accelerating or worsening by taking good care of your diet and lifestyle choices.
