Enlarged Prostate - Diagnosis

Overview | Causes | Diagnosis | Treatment | FAQ

Prostatitis

Your physician will need to perform a urinalysis to check for infection or blood cells. A digital rectal exam to palpate the prostate will also be performed. Other tests include PSA test and an urine test (urinalysis).

Prostate Enlargement

There are many ways to evaluate whether a patient has an enlarged prostate, some of the most common ways follow:

  • Your doctor will ask you detailed questions about your symptoms. You will most likely be asked about other health problems, medications (including over-the-counter, OTC, drugs, such as ibuprofen or antacids) you're taking and whether there's a history of prostate problems in your family.

  • Your doctor may perform a digital rectal exam. Due to the proximity of the prostate to the rectum, your doctor can determine whether your prostate is enlarged and also check for signs of prostate cancer.

  • A urine test may help rule out an infection or other conditions that cause prostate enlargement-like symptoms, such as prostatitis, bladder infection or kidney disease.

Bladder Outlet Obstruction

Your doctor will ask detailed questions about your symptoms and medical history. A physical exam will be performed to help determine if a bladder outlet obstruction exists.

One of the most common causes of this condition is an enlarged prostate or BPH. A thorough history and physical examination evaluating other potential sources of lower urinary tract obstructive symptoms should be undertaken before empiric treatment for BPH is begun.
