How can benign prostatic hypertrophy be diagnosed?
1. Digital Rectal Exam
In digital rectal exam, the physician is able to palpate whether or not a patient has an abnormally enlarged prostate
2. Prostate Specific antigen
The PSA level of a patient is measured through a blood smear and elevated amounts may mean the possibility of prostate cancer or benign prostatic hypertrophy. Definite diagnosis can only be done after a biopsy
3. Urine Flow Study
The urine flow study measures how quickly you can empty your bladder and increased results would mean a possibility of benign prostatic hypertrophy.
