BLADDER PROSTATE CARE
It’s not uncommon for the bladder or prostate to cause pain, discomfort or urinary challenges for men as they age. Prostate enlargement, for example, is the leading cause of bladder issues such as incontinence and overactive bladder (OAB) in men.
You don’t need to live with these limitations, though. At MUSC, our urologists are among the regions most skilled and experienced. We use advanced diagnostic and treatment options to relieve your symptoms and improve your quality of life. We find a plan that works for you.
The prostate goes through two main growth periods as a man ages. The first occurs early in puberty, when the prostate doubles in size. The second phase of growth begins around age 25 and continues during most of a man’s life. Benign prostatic hyperplasia often occurs with the second growth phase.
