I am a 61 year old male diagnosed with prostate enlargement about 3 years ago. All tests were clear for prostate cancer and my condition is not usually a problem. My only other problem which I suffered through my entire life is constipation.
Recently I had a flare up of the prostate and it has not gone down completely but the pain eased over the past few days. While the pain was quite bad, I noticed that I was more constipated than normal.
I am wondering if my prostate has become so big now that it is pressing against my colon and making the constipation worse during these episodes. Is this possible?
