But that doesn’t mean you need to take the "wait and see" approach.
As men and women get older, they’re more likely to experience prostate and other urological issues. These problems can include testicular lumps or cancer, kidney and urinary tract diseases, as well as issues resulting from an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer. Although these urological problems can be difficult or even embarrassing to talk about, as they may cause you to lose bladder control or affect sexual performance, the alternative can be much worse. If you’re a man over 50, you should talk to you doctor about getting a regular exam.

Once you turn 50, your risk of prostate health problems goes up dramatically. The most common prostate problem is prostate enlargement, which happens because the prostate continues to grow as you mature. As a result, it can start to squeeze the urethra and cause bladder control problems. It can also affect sexual performance and increase your risk of prostate cancer.
