Any man who is in his fifties, sixties or seventies there's a better chance that you will be suffering from an enlarged prostate gland and will be experiencing a range of common symptoms such as including:
1.  Urination obstruction.
2.  Nausea.
3.  Back pain.
4.  Presence of blood in the urine.
5.  Fever.

Having an enlarged prostate is not only painful. It can be embarrassing as well. To make matters worse, the condition can lead to life-threatening complications.
Swollen prostate can lead to further complication if you don't treat it. It causes blockage by clogging your kidneys with urine. In such cases, acute urinary retention can happen.
It may even develop into chronic kidney disease, kidney damage or infection, bladder damage, and bladder stones.
Unfortunately, because most men will suffer from an enlarged prostate, particularly in their sixties and seventies, many men don't worry when the symptoms appear and certainly wouldn't take it seriously until it become life threatening.

Some of the ways to control prostate cancer are:

1.  Alcohol consumption: as men begin to have urinary symptoms associated with prostate enlargement, it is important they look at alcohol consumption. More fluid in means more fluid out. Drink less.
2.  Men should ejaculate at least 21 times per month to reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer.
3.  Men who sit longer are more prone to prostate symptoms. When we sit, two third of our weight rests on the pelvic bones. Do not sit for long hours. Walk around as often as you can. Sit on a comfortable chairs.
4.  Maintain a healthy weight and be physically active.
5.  Know your family medical history and get regular cancer screenings.
6.  Get immunized (HPV and hepatitis vaccines).
Celibates are more prone to prostate illness. Also, Celibacy is a moral decision, it is not a biological adaptation. So your prostate gland is designed to empty its contents regularly.
Chronic constipation can contribute to an enlarged prostate by putting pressure on the gland.
7.  Men should avoid tight underwear. It impacts circulation around the groin and heats it up a bit. However, the physiological temperature bus 37 degrees, the groin has an optimal temperature of about 33 degrees. Men are not supposed to wear pant rather wear boxers. Wear breathable clothing.
8.  Avoid smoking. It affects blood vessels and impact circulation around the groin.

Accounting to the US National Cancer Institute says that 33 percent of all cancers is related to what we eat.

1.  Tomatoes are very good for men. It has loads of Lycopene. Lycopene is the most potent natural antioxidant.
2.  Milk everyday doubles your risk of prostate cancer.
3.  Red meat everyday triples your chances of prostate disease.
4.  Not taking fruits/ vegetables daily quadruples your risk of prostate cancer.
5.  Foods that are rich in Zinc are good for men. Zinc is about the most essential element for male sexuality and fertility. Men need more zinc than women. Men loses 15mg of zinc each time he ejaculates. Also, Zinc is important for alcohol metabolism, your liver needs zinc to metabolise alcohol. We recommend pumpkin seed.
6.  Foods rich in omega 3 are recommended.
7.  Garlic and ginger.
8.  Foods rich in magnesium.
9.  Green tea.
10.  Berries.
