How is BPH Diagnosed?

Diagnosing BPH/enlarged prostate includes performing a complete medical history and physical exam. Your physician will also perform a digital rectal exam (DRE) to better assess the size of the prostate. Your urologist may order a prostate specific antigen (PSA) test to rule out other conditions of the prostate.

Additional diagnostic tests may include:
  • Urine flow rate
  • Post-void residual test to see how much urine is left in your bladder after urination
  • Pressure flow studies to measure the pressure in the bladder as you urinate
  • Urinalysis to check for blood or infection
  • Urine culture to check for infection
  • Cystoscopy, to visualize the interior of the prostate and bladder
