How is benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) diagnosed?
Your doctor will ask about your symptoms and perform a physical exam including a digital rectal exam (DRE) to check the prostate gland. A blood test called PSA is commonly used to help assess BPH. More tests such as urinalysis, ultrasound and urodynamic testing may be recommended if necessary.
