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
