Prostate problems have become common due to lifestyle changes such as excessive alcohol consumption and consuming adulterated food. Men who are older than 40 years of age have a higher risk of prostate enlargement. Diagnosis is done using prostate ultrasound which is also known as transrectal ultrasound (TRUS). Prostate ultrasound uses sound waves to form an image of the prostate which makes it safe as it does not use any harmful radiation. The shape and size of the prostate are determined to find any anomalies.
Your doctor will recommend prostate ultrasound if any of the following symptoms arise:-
- Pain or burning sensation during passing urine
- Blood in urine
- Nodes and lumps found during the rectal examination
- Trouble or pain in sexual intercourse
- Fall in sperm count or infertility
- Blood test results indicating prostate problems
Transrectal ultrasound may feel uncomfortable therefore a mild sedative can be given if required. Your doctor may also prescribe some medication afterwards. Prostate ultrasound is widely used as it is a reliable diagnostic technique. If you feel any of the discomforts mentioned above you can get an appointment at Bansal Global Hospital and get yourself investigated for prostate enlargement using this technique.
