It becomes difficult to pass urine among some, but not all men with enlarged prostate glands. Unfortunately there aren't many other symptoms. Your doctor can detect increased levels of PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen), but that doesn't always catch the problem, you'll need to go to your doctor for regular exams.
