Here are some...: Grade 1 prostatomegaly is coined to denote mild degree of prostate enlargement, caused by aging along with subtle change in hormonal balance although the precise mechanism remains imperfectly clear & unknown. In practice, it is arbitrarily designated by practitioners' estimation from digital rectal exam but very inaccurate; clinically, one has to always correlate with patient's voiding pattern.
