How should I treat enlarged prostate with calcification?

Update Date: Source: Network

The treatment method for enlarged prostate with calcification should be determined based on specific symptoms and examination results. For young patients, it is recommended to follow up and observe in time, and no special treatment is required. For middle-aged and elderly patients, blood tests should also be performed to exclude the possibility of tumors, and whether surgical treatment is needed should be determined based on urine tests. Therefore, patients with prostatic hypertrophy with calcification should go to the hospital for examination promptly.

Treatment for Enlarged Prostate with Calcification

1. For young people, we can follow up and observe without treatment for the time being; 2. For middle-aged and elderly patients, we should combine some blood test indicators of the patient to exclude the possibility of tumors. At the same time, we should combine the patient's urination situation and monitor the patient's residual urine. If the residual urine reaches a certain level, it may be necessary to perform a prostate resection surgery; if it does not meet the surgical criteria, but the prostate is indeed enlarged and calcified, with some symptoms, we can take some medication, such as α-blockers, which can improve the patient's urination symptoms; 3. For senile prostatic enlargement and calcification, we must closely monitor his blood indicators to exclude malignant tumors. If it is a malignant tumor, we will perform endocrine therapy or surgical treatment, or a combination of multiple treatment options, depending on the patient's condition, age, and physical condition.

Reasons for Enlarged Prostate with Calcification

Prostatic hypertrophy is clinically known as prostatic hyperplasia, which is a benign lesion. Prostatic calcification refers to high-density calcified lesions formed in the prostatic gland, which may gradually evolve from chronic inflammatory stimulation or vascular infarction lesions. Simple prostatic calcification does not cause obvious clinical symptoms and does not require treatment. Mainly, it is necessary to observe whether prostatic hypertrophy has led to clinical symptoms.
