The prostate is a gland that sits just under the bladder, it produces seminal fluid ( the fluid that sperm are ejaculated in) As men get older the prostate usually gets bigger, as it does this it can affect urination. There are several investigations we do on men with prostate disease including the PSA blood test, there are also several treatments for benign prostate disease if your symptoms are too troublesome. If you are getting symptoms of prostrate disease please book a phone call with one of our team.
Symptoms of prostate disease can be:
– Poor urinary stream,
– Difficulty starting urination,
– Dribbling at the end of urination,
– Sometimes it also affects the bladder to make men pass urine more frequently or with more urgency to go.
If you ever pass blood in your urine please book a call with a doctor as soon as possible, it is often due to an infection but it can be from prostate or bladder cancer.
