What does these enlarged prostate result indicate?

Hi Dr. Chandan,
USG reported that I have a mildly enlarged prostate measuring 3.1x3.4x3.4 cm(weight 21gms). It also shows homogenous and smooth outline. Seminal vesicles are normal. USG impression: mild prostatomegaly. I am 40 years old. Is there any problem in having sexual intercourse? Please suggest me what to do.

Your USG findings suggests mildly enlarged prostate and it is age related finding.It generally doesn't causes any problem in sexual intercourse.

Mildly enlarged prostate need clinical correlation and further investigations.
PSA(prostate specific antigen)should also be assessed in enlarged prostate.
After clinical evaluation,you may need medicines to take like alpha-blockers and 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors.
You should consult nephrologist.
It is not a very serious finding.

Get well soon.
Take Care
