Why is my prostate enlarged?

Enlarged prostate is a very common finding in men, especially those over 50 years of age. Your GP will probably call it ‘benign prostatic hyperplasia’ or BPH, and refer you to a urologist for assessment and treatment. It’s important to have it checked out, to exclude the possibility of prostate cancer, which can also cause an enlarged prostate.

Aggressive or fast-growing prostate cancer will need prompt treatment. We treat prostate cancer using the most advanced medical, radiological and surgical techniques.

For non-aggressive or slow-growing prostate cancer, the urologist may give you the choice of watchful waiting with regular check-ups. The older you are, the more likely your prostate cancer will be non-aggressive.
