This is a non cancerous condition where your prostate enlarges in size and results in urinary problems which include a slow flow, irritation to pass urine all the time, dribbling at the end of urination etc. This is NOT a normal ageing disorder you have to live with and can have significant adverse effects on your quality of life, sexual health, general well being and over all health. There are many solutions to this many of which don’t even require surgery or long term medications.
You only were supposed to have incontinance s a new born. There is no reason whatsoever you should live with incontinance if you have a choice. the reasons could be very simple like a irritable prostate or a irritable baller which can be cured with simple treatments. Sometimes this is just a consequence of a weak pelvic floor and now with the advances in urology science, you may have therapy to help tighten theses muscles with out needing surgery.
Theses are very common in this part of the world likely due to the food we eat and the weather. There are a leading cause of kidney failure if not treated promptly.

This term means that you have blood in the urine. the blood may be seen (visible) or not seen(non visible) with the naked eye. The key point is if there’re any associated symptoms especially pain. Having blood in the urine whether little or a lot is not normal and can be an indication of avery series urological disease. Especially if there is no symptom we refer to this as asymptomatic hematuria and this warrants a set series of tests to rule out the 4% change of having a urological cancer in the your urinary system.
Only men have prostates thus not surprising this is a very common cancer in men. The good news is that it is usually very slow growing and we have a fairly accurate screening protocol to help you detect this early so that it can be cured. Prostate cancer is a curable disease if caught at an early stage. It is also one of the few rare cancers that can be managed without any treatment depending on your game, disease stage etc. If you are above 50 there is no reason why this should not be part of your health screening.
Commoner in me then in women and can be a very difficult cancer to manage if not detected early. Gross bleeding in the urine or pain is a late sign and the earliest indication is microscopic blood in the urine. If you are a male, above 40, smoke and have family history of cancer then you could be at risk!
Chronic prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome remain very common yet poorly understood diseases with hardly any solid therapeutic options based on level 1 evidence. It affects around 50% of men throughout their lifetime and can cause urinary and erectile dysfunction if left untreated affecting their quality of life. Currently, there is a lack of guidelines for the management of CPPS.
