Do you experience painful or frequent urination?
Men with age often experience painful and/or frequent urination. The need to urinate more often, pain during urination, sudden urge to urinate and other symptoms may be caused by a variety of conditions including urinary tract infections, kidney stones and prostate enlargement. Pain or burning while urinating may be a sign of a prostate problem, such as a prostate infection or enlargement of the prostate gland. Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) is a common health condition in males. It causes the prostate gland to grow larger than normal size. As the prostate increased in size, it can squeeze the urethra and hinder the normal urine flow. The causes of BPH are not known exactly. Experts consider that it is a part of normal process of growing older. Others think that the hormonal change may be the cause of the problem. BPH is often diagnosed in men over 45 years of age. Men having such unpleasant symptoms should visit a doctor. Only a medical professional can decide what has caused the symptoms. Special tests and procedures may be needed. BHP is a treatable condition. Know more about the treatment methods at your doctor’s office.
