Why is your overactive bladder related to your prostate and what can you do about it?
“Menopause” is a very well-known term, and sitcoms are having a great time exposing all the associated symptoms in various funny ways, although, when your wife has them, they do not appear so funny…
However, when it comes to what men have to deal with in their 50s and onwards, there is hardly any talk about urinary problems.
Maybe having a sudden urgency to urinate does not seem as critical for a man, when it seems so easy for men to just stop and pee wherever they are. This might have been true in the stone age, when we were out hunting; however, this is not the case these days.
Changes in the prostate in men develop gradually without any external signs, except the gradual distress that is formed around the peeing habits. Since nobody speaks about it, most men don’t even notice the gradual progress of the symptoms, and treat the changes in their bodies as a natural part of aging: our organs are getting older, and, hence their function gets impaired.
Let’s speak about it, as, even though it is a natural process,
it can progress into distressing symptoms.
What is this prostate and what is happening?
The prostate gland is one of the three sexual glands in the male’s body. This small gland, which can be found under the bladder, has a major part in the process of producing semen and is therefore very important.
From maturation until the age of 20, the prostate grows at a quick pace due to the accelerating growth of the levels of testosterone in the male body. Between the ages of 20 and 40, the prostate continues to grow at a slow and moderate pace. The growth of the gland at these ages is proportional and usually does not cause any functional or health disorders.
At the age of 50, in about half of the men, a change starts to occur in the prostate gland, pinching the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder through the penis, and affecting the urinary tract. This translates into many different symptoms that all relate to your peeing habits.
As men age, this situation accelerates, and, by the age of 80, about 80% of men experience these bothersome urinary symptoms.
