Is 35 to young for prostate problems?

A: Ron, you are not too young for prostate problems.  The most common prostate condition at your age is a swollen prostate from infrequent ejaculation or an inflamed prosate, so called prostatitis.  Prostatic enlargement (BPH) and prostate cancer are unusual at age 35. There are many causes for urinary frequency.  The common ones include diabetes, urinary tract infections, excessive fluid consumption (especially coffee, tea and beer which produce an additive diuretic effect), prostate conditions in men (ie benign or cancerous enlargement, prostatitis, prostatic congestion which is most often due to infrequent ejaculation, etc.), urinary stones, a variety of kidney disorders associated with inability to concentrate the urine...

What Is Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy?

A: The prostate gland is part of the male reproductive system. This small two-lobed gland is located below the bladder, and during ejaculation, secretes a fluid which makes up a large part of the ejaculate. A condition called benign prostatic hypertrophy, in which the prostate gland becomes enlarged, develops in most men as they age. Benign prostatic hypertrophy is not a cancerous condition, cannot turn into prostate cancer, and does not increase the risk of cancer developing. Enlargement of the prostate causes problems because the gland wraps around the urethra as it exits the bladder. The enlarged prostate begins to press on the urethra, with several effects. First, the walls of the bladder may thicken and become more sensitive to irritation. Second, because the prostate gland presses on...

I am scared that I might have Prostate Cancer?

A: Go to a real doctor, it''s youre life dude. Y! answers are not doctors, we can''t really diagnose you for diseases and medical conditions. You should talk to your parents and tell them you have a discomfort around your pelvic area and testicles. Don''t let being shy end your life. You more likely have constipation than cancer. Prostate cancer doesn''t usually manifest itself with physical pain, but rather symptoms that are not related. Here''s the big run down, below. By the way, stop worrying about cancer.

What are the chances of having prostate cancer for age 25?

A: It is rare but it can happen. If you have concerns, ask your doctor about it and if you still are worried, see if she will do a PSA test,(a simply blood test) along with a DRE, (digitel rectal exam) and palpate your prostate. While cancer is not likely, you could have a prostate infection, which can be treated with antibiotics. You are much more likely to have testicular cancer at your age. After 40 to 50, the chances of testicular cancer go way down and prostate cancer goes way up. Additionally, you could have BPH, which is just an enlarged prostate. This is also treatable. Your doctor can explain all this to you and will either do the tests herself or refer you to a urologist. Doubtful. There are other diseases of the prostate and they all have basically the same

What Is the Treatment For prostatitis?

The prostate is a male sex gland responsible for producing a fluid into the semen to make it expel more quickly during ejaculation. prostatitis cause pain in the prostate, as well as difficulty or pain while urinating.

enlarged prostate - the use of a stint

A: Harry, benign enlargement of the prostate gland (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH) occurs to varying degrees in all men as they age.  The prostate surrounds the urinary canal (urethra) just after its connection to the urinary bladder.  Inward growth of the prostate either into the bladder neck (opening) or into the urethra itself can cause difficulty with urinating.  The prostate is checked by digital examination through the rectum.  This gives the doctor an idea as to the size and benignity of the gland.  However, it does not always correlate to symptoms as a small gland may have significant inward growth and a large glands enlargement may be entirely peripheral.   The ability to urinate involves the urinary bladder muscle...

Prostate? Bladder? or what?

A: Did they try looking for a gall bladder stone? Long story short, I have had chronic prostitis (IIIA) since I was 20. I am now 51 and have just now been diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis. This I am sure is the cause of the majority of my bladder/prostate problems. I have been treated by 8 different doctors in the last 30 years for this chronic prostitis problem. All but one have been quick to throw out the antibiotics and just dismiss it as a hard to treat problem. Finally after going to a "large well known" urologist center for 2 years, I went back to my GP and said that I was really unnerved about my continueing prostate problems. My GP recommended a "second opinion" from another local urologist. My reluctance almost cost me dearly. I went to this fellow...
