Prostate problems in men are both extremely common and treatable. Approximately half of all men over age 50 have an enlarged prostate. The prostate gland is a donut-shaped gland that wraps around the urethra. Older men tend to have enlarged prostates, a condition known as BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia). This condition can squeeze the urethra, restrict the flow of urine and lead to more frequent nighttime bathroom trips.

Prostatitis

Prostatitis, which is inflammation or infection of the prostate, is less a less common condition that tends to affect younger and middle-aged men. Possible prostatitis symptoms may include:

  • Painful urination or ejaculation
  • Fever, chills
  • Pelvic pain
  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Cloudy urine

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer next to skin cancer, affecting about one in six men during their lifetime. Fortunately, prostate cancer is usually slow growing. Only one in 35 men dies from prostate cancer. As with BPH, the risk for prostate cancer increases with age, and two out of every three men with prostate cancer are 65 or older. The symptoms below should not be ignored if you want to prevent development and progression of prostate cancer:

  • Burning during urination or ejaculation
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Blood in urine and/or semen
  • Pain in bones
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Difficulty starting or stopping urination
  • Inability to urinate standing up
  • Weak or decreased urine flow
  • Difficulty starting urination or need to hold back while urinating
  • Pain and discomfort in the pelvic area, lower back or upper thighs

The same symptoms can also be caused by urinary tract infections (UTI) or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), both non-cancerous conditions. BPH is often confused with prostate cancer. We can help diagnose your problem and provide prostate cancer treatment that can correct any of the issues listed above.

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection suitable for intercourse. Erectile dysfunction is a common problem for men over 40. There are several possible solutions for erectile dysfunction, including taking Viagra, Cialis or Levitra. Be sure to ask Dr. Husain about other solutions that are not based on pharmaceutical intervention.
