Urination Disorders in Men
Though there are different causes of urination problems in males, neither of them can be treated without proper investigation and examination. Depending on the severity of conditions, they are tolerable in some men and painful in others. If due to age, surgeries, medications or any other triggers a person experiences discomfort, he should address his doctor to discard it altogether.
BPH in 1/3 of Men Aged 50, in 70% Aged 70
The symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) are generally severe and require proper treatment. In some cases the range of severity is a nuisance, while in others it requires special accommodations to man’s life.
When in a neglected or desolate condition, BPH results in inability to urinate, hospitalization and catheterization of bladder:
- when you have BPH, the bladder muscles are weakened by trying to push the fluid through the prostate that is now narrowed;
- in case of prostate overgrowth the flow is completely blocked leading to urinary retention that requires immediate treatment.
BPH and Diabetes are interconnected, and diabetes frequently becomes the cause of symptoms of many prostate conditions, including enlarged prostate – BPH.
