3. Recurring constipation
The prostate gland can be found in front of the rectum, therefore tumors in this general area can interfere with the digestive functions needed to process food through the intestines. Chronic constipation can contribute to an enlarged prostate gland by putting pressure on the gland, and the gland can also become engorged and put pressure on the prostate. These types of complications can also be early indicators of both prostate and colon cancer. It is recommended that if an individual tries laxatives, and diet change yet the symptom persists, they should get themselves checked out by a medical professional.
