An enlarged prostate is a benign condition and one that is typically diagnosed based on symptoms rather than a specific test. Assuming your PSA and rectal exam are normal, you can safely choose on your own to try an herbal approach to manage minor urinary difficulties. If you are experiencing symptoms of prostate enlargement, such as having to wake up at night to visit the bathroom, consider trying saw palmetto. This plant extract seems to relax the prostate, making it easier for your bladder to work correctly. It can be purchased without a prescription, is free from serious side effects, and has been proven to be very safe. Look for Prostate SR from Theralogix for a reliable saw palmetto product.
