The symptoms of prostate problems may include

  • urinary retention—the inability to empty the bladder completely
  • urinary frequency—urination eight or more times a day
  • urinary urgency—the inability to delay urination
  • urinary incontinence—the accidental loss of urine
  • nocturia—frequent urination at night
  • trouble beginning a urine stream
  • weak or interrupted urine stream
  • blockage of urine
  • urine that has an unusual color or odor
  • pain after ejaculation or during urination

Different prostate problems may have similar symptoms. For example, one man with prostatitis and another with BPH may both experience urinary urgency. Sometimes symptoms for the same prostate problem differ among individuals. For example, one man with BPH may have trouble beginning a urine stream, while another may experience nocturia. A man in the early stages of prostate cancer may have no symptoms at all. Because of this confusing array of symptoms, a thorough medical exam and testing are vital.

This is a great list of problems and according to reviews of Super Beta Prostate Supplement, it can be helpful in relieving these symptoms and helping regain prostate health. It's a natural supplement and effective because of the high amounts of beta-sitosterol and other plant sterols that work on the prostate gland.
