For most men, as they age, the nightly bathroom visits are one of the first signs of having an enlarged prostate. These bathroom trips, although quite often, may not be satisfying either. The common symptoms of the condition include trouble urinating, leaking and dribbling. Most urologists consider prostate enlargement as a by-product of getting old.

Although prostate enlargement as such is a very common conditio... more
