Were you looking for information about Enlarged Prostate? Enlarged prostrate is a common misspelling of enlarged prostate.
An enlarged prostate is common in older men. Doctors refer to this condition as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or benign prostatic hypertrophy. More than half of men in their 60s and as many as 90 percent in their 70s and 80s have some symptoms of an enlarged prostate, which often involve problems with urination (for example, a weak urine flow or stopping and starting urine flow).
An enlarged prostate is typically diagnosed based on the results of tests such as a digital rectal exam (DRE), PSA test, and cystoscopy.
