Is it serious to have an enlarged prostate with no symptoms or pain?
My father is 52 yrs old.In a recent sonography,he has been detected with slightly enlarged prostrate.It weighs about 26grams and his post void residual urine is found to be 50.08ml.is it a matter if concern given that he has no symptoms of growing prostrate on any other pain or difficulties as such?
Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum, No its not a matter of concern, as per sonography it is slightly enlarged, its normal with the age,(26 gm), and post residual urine volume is also OK, so you can relax, need not to be concern.Besides that your father is asymptomatic then then it will not be a wise decision to fiddle it with. Yes as per his age you can get a test done called serum PSA=(Prostate specific antigen) to rule out any underlying cancer in prostate. If it is high then we have to move for needle biopsy to confirm . Regards, Thanks
