Weight Of Prostrate At 52 Years?

Postby Muireach » Wed Oct 11, 2017 12:54 am

Weight alone does not indicate any problem and is not normally considered in a diagnosis.
For your information a normal prostate weighs 20 grams or 0.7 ounces.
In order to obtain an actual weight the prostate has to be surgically removed.
The weight can be indirectly indicated by size.
An enlarged prostate will weigh more.
How much more can vary greatly with the individual.
Prostate size tends to increase with an increased body mass index.
An obese man can have a prostate twice the normal weight.
Interestingly enough a morbidly obese individual (in excess of a BMI of 40) will have a smaller prostate, possibly due to a lower testosterone level.
