Prostate Problems

Prostatitis

 

Prostatitis is where the prostate gland becomes inflamed (swollen). It's sometimes caused by a bacterial infection, although more often no infection can be found and it's not clear why it happened.

 

Unlike prostate enlargement or prostate cancer – which usually affect older men – prostatitis can develop in men of all ages.

 

However, it's generally more common in men between 30 and 50 years of age.

 

Symptoms of prostatitis can include:

 

  • pain in the pelvis, genitals, lower back and buttocks
  • pain when urinating
  • a frequent need to pee
  • difficulty urinating, such as problems starting to pee
  • pain when ejaculating
  • pain in the perineum (the area between the anus and scrotum), which is often made worse by prolonged sitting

Prostate enlargement

 

Prostate enlargement is a very common condition associated with ageing. Over a third of all men over 50 years of age will have some symptoms of prostate enlargement.

 

It's not known why the prostate gets bigger as you get older, but it isn't caused by cancer and it doesn't increase your risk of developing prostate cancer.

 

An enlarged prostate can put pressure on the urethra (see above), which can affect how you urinate.

 

Signs of an enlarged prostate can include:

 

  • difficulty starting or stopping urinating
  • a weak flow of urine
  • straining when peeing
  • feeling like you're not able to fully empty your bladder
  • prolonged dribbling after you've finished peeing
  • needing to pee more frequently or more suddenly
  • waking up frequently during the night to pee

About the prostate gland

 

The prostate is a small gland found only in men. It surrounds the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body). It sits just below the bladder and the opening of the vas deferens (tube that carries sperm up from the testicles to the urethra).

 

The prostate gland produces a thick, white fluid that's mixed with sperm to create semen.

 

The prostate gland is about the size and shape of a walnut, but tends to get bigger as you get older. It can sometimes become swollen or enlarged because of medical conditions such as those outlined below.
