Meanwhile, here's something that someone's urinary bladder was full of:
What causes these stones to form?
Well, there are many possible causes.
In the case of this patient, the cause of multiple stone formation was urinary outlet obstruction secondary to an extraordinarily enlarged prostate gland also known as BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia). The normal prostate gland is about the size of a pingpong ball but this here below is about five times that.
And what are the predisposing factors that may lead to BPH ? Studies have shown that the following factors affect the incidence of BPH in a population.
age, family history
ethnicity, medical condition
diet and sexual habits
What I can say:
Drink plenty of water.
Don't hold urination for too long.
Don't ignore symptoms.
Don't chicken out from a check up.
Don't take my word for it. Afterall, I'm not a urologist. See your specialist.
