In the second episode of the Vodafone Healthline Spin-off show, Dr Paul Yegbe, a prominent urologist, discussed various signs that may signal prostate problems in men.

He explained that one of the most prevalent concerns that men face is prostate gland enlargement. According to him, the enlargement of the prostate can produce a block in urine flow because the tube that transports urine from the bladder through the centre of the prostate is restricted by the enlargement. He mentioned that this illness can cause urinary symptoms that can worsen over time.

“Because there is a narrowing as a result of the enlargement of the prostate, there may be some urinary problems such as a delay in urination, intermittent urination, and strain caused by the pressure of urine against one’s abdominal walls,” Dr Yegbe told host Frema Asiedu on the Vodafone Healthline Spin-off show.

He warned that if left untreated, men with enlarged prostates could develop issues such as urinary tract infections, which can cause pain during urination, and kidney failure due to urine retention.

Dr Yegbe cautioned that when these signs and symptoms develop, it is critical to get medical assistance.

Aside from prostate illnesses, the show emphasised ginger’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics, as well as its capacity to improve digestion, relieve nausea and vomiting, aid in weight loss, and help with arthritis.
