1. "For years, I struggled with the symptoms of an enlarged prostate without ever being diagnosed with an actual problem. I would often have trouble fully emptying my bladder and had a weak urine stream, but all of my prostate exams and tests came back normal. It wasn't until I saw a different doctor that I was finally diagnosed with a condition called bladder neck obstruction, which can mimic the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. I underwent a simple surgery to fix the issue and my symptoms went away immediately." - John, 58 2. "I've been dealing with the frustrating symptoms of an enlarged prostate for the past few years. It's always been a mystery to me because my doctors have never found anything wrong with my prostate during exams or tests. I experience a slow start to urination and often have a weak stream, making it difficult to fully empty my bladder. It's been a struggle, but I've learned to manage the symptoms through lifestyle changes and medication." - Michael, 65 3. "I started noticing symptoms of an enlarged prostate in my early 50s. I had trouble starting to urinate and would often have to go multiple times within a short period because I couldn't completely empty my bladder. I was worried it was prostate cancer, but all of my tests and exams came back normal. It wasn't until I did some research and saw a urologist that I learned I had a condition called prostatitis, which can cause the same symptoms as an enlarged prostate. With proper treatment and lifestyle changes, I've been able to manage my symptoms effectively." - David, 58 4. "I thought for sure I had an enlarged prostate when I started experiencing difficulty urinating. It would take me a while to even start and then the stream would be weak and stop and start. I went to multiple doctors and had various tests done, but they all came back normal. It wasn't until I saw a specialist that I was diagnosed with overactive bladder, which can cause these kinds of symptoms. With medication and pelvic floor exercises, I've been able to improve my symptoms drastically." - Sarah, 63
