As has been reported in the media recently, King Charles will be undergoing ‘corrective surgery for an enlarged prostate’ shortly.

The prostate is a gland that sits in the pelvis of males, just below the bladder, and plays a role in semen production.

About 1 in 2 people aged over 50 years will have some prostate enlargement. This may result in the following symptoms:

  • difficulty urinating
  • frequency of urination
  • waking at night to urinate

 If you have any of these symptoms, it is recommended that you speak to your GP about a Men’s Health Check. To make an appointment, click here or phone 8370 9777.
