I have thickening of the bladder and enlarged prostate what are the causes of this?
The prostate enlarges as men age. As the prostate enlarges, it narrows the urinary channel and as a result, the bladder has to work harder to get the urine past the prostate opening. The bladder working harder over a period of time results in bladder wall thickening. This can be treated with medicines to relax the prostate opening (Flomax or Uroxatral or Rapaflo) as well as medicines to shrink the prostate (Avodart and Proscar). Sometimes the medicines are used in combination, when one alone is not effective or when maximal effect is desired.
