Common urology issues affecting men

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH): Also known as enlarged prostate, BPH occurs when the size of the prostate gland increases. This condition is highly prevalent in older men above the age of 40 and is not directly connected with prostate cancer as most people believe. Men who have this condition experience a frequent urge to urinate which can be coupled with a weak stream of urine or a feeling that their bladder is not empty. Common signs and symptoms include:

  • Weak stream of urine

  • Frequent urge to urinate

  • Difficulty in initiating urination

  • The feeling of a full bladder

  • Dribbling at the end of urination

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs): A highly common condition, urinary tract infections occur when pathogenic viruses or bacteria invade the urinary tract that leads to infection. The most common symptom of UTI is that it causes a burning sensation when urinating. However, cloudy urine and painful urination are also common symptoms of this condition. If a person has any of the symptoms, it is recommended to consult the best urologist for timely and cost-effective treatment. 

Erectile Dysfunction: Also termed as impotence, erectile dysfunction or ED is a condition that causes sexual dysfunction in males. The characteristic of erectile dysfunction is the inability of males to either maintain or develop a constant erection of the penis during any sexual activity. The most common causes of erectile dysfunction are either diabetes or cardiovascular diseases.

Kidney and Ureteral Stones: Kidney stones and ureteral stones are highly common in men. The stones that develop in kidney and other parts of the urinary system are hard deposits of salts and minerals. These stones can travel through the urinary tract, from kidneys to the bladder and beyond. Ureteral stones are the ones that move from the kidneys to the ureter. Stones in these parts of the body can block the urine flow and cause pain. Moreover, if stones are left untreated, they can prove to be fatal. The signs and symptoms include:

  • Abnormal urine colour

  • Abdominal pain

  • Nausea

  • Blood in urine

  • Fever

  • Vomiting

Urinary Incontinence: Urinary incontinence is recognised by loss of bladder control which leads to leakage of urine. Since this condition is involuntary and can happen anytime, the patient can feel embarrassed and inconvenient. Urinary incontinence in men can be caused by many other conditions such as:

  • Diabetes

  • Weak bladder muscles

  • Urinary tract infections

  • Injury to the spinal cord

  • Weak sphincter muscles
