Your prostate gland may have following issues:

In case of enlarged prostate gland your urologist is likely to examine your blood pressure, penis and testicles. This may follow examination of your rectum by inserting finger in it to feel the gland health. These tests may be of little discomfort but they are necessary to assess the health of your prostate gland. Besides, your urologist may inquire you of your lifestyle habits like smoking, consumption of alcohol or caffeine intake per day. These are major factors that determine the health of your prostate gland. Intake of diuretic liquids majorly influences the health of your prostate. Your regular medicines acting as diuretic (increase urine production) may also get altered with the instructions of your urologist.
