VISAKHAPATNAM: Noted urologist and andrologist M. Prasada Rao said problems associated with prostate gland enlargement could be contained through timely check-up and regular intake of medicines.

Stating that awareness level in India was very low, he told reporters that many visit a doctor at advance stage leading to serious complications. He said negligence might also cause renal failure.

He said as part of prostate awareness month, he would offer free consultation and discount in tests on Thursday at Noble Polyclinic (third lane, Dwarakanagar). He said generally the gland enlargement was noticed among men after crossing 40 years.
