The volume should increase. This makes some sense. Indeed, in fact. The vast majority of patients have prostate enlargement to varying degrees, some of which are also very significant. However, there are some patients whose prostate volume does not increase very much, and some of them are even very small. However, they still have symptoms of prostate hyperplasia, such as difficulty urinating, weakness urination, and so on. What the hell is going on here?
The level of dysuria in a patient does not entirely depend on the size of the prostate gland, but mainly on the site of hyperplasia. "If the site of prostate hyperplasia is close to the periphery of the urethra and protrudes into the urethra or into the bladder, it will compress the urethra, which can produce significant symptoms of urinary obstruction.". "If the middle lobe of the prostate is hyperplastic, it is like forming a spherical valve in the neck of the bladder. When urinating, it covers the inner orifice of the urethra, which directly affects the discharge of urine.". At this time, even if the volume of the prostate is not too large, the obstruction caused is also obvious, and the symptoms of dysuria are very prominent. "If the prostate mainly grows around, even if the gland is large, it can be felt during a digital rectal examination, but it does not necessarily produce significant symptoms of urinary obstruction.".
