The prostate tends to increase with age. Due to the location of this gland, this growth can lead to urinary symptoms: weaker urinary jet, difficulty in urinating (effort), two-stroke urination, time to wait to start urination, increased urinary frequency. About 1/3 of men aged 50 have symptoms attributable to BPH. The diagnosis is clinical but must be confirmed with some tests: ultrasound, flowmetry, PSA, IPSS, urethroscopy / cystoscopy.
