User :   First I will be 40 in a few months; two quick questions
1] After urinating a few drops drips after - what could be causing this and what's the remedy and
20 Latelt I have noticed asome discharge like semen after BMs; is it a cause for concern?
Doctor :   HI
Doctor :   all this issue from how long ?
User :   thef irst problem for sometime say 1=2 yrs, 2nd problem for couple of months
Doctor :   the first problem may be due to the enlargment of the prostrate as it occurs the early forties
User :   is it a cause for concern if that is the case?
Doctor :   you need to get an physical examination done along with the ultrasound abdomen to know if there is an enlargment of prostate and it is causing the impairment to the flow of urine at the end
Doctor :   yes it is of concern
Doctor :   as the prostate enlargment is progressive
User :   6 months a go, i had an abdominal cat scan that that came negative. do you that it could have detedted the problem if infact its an enlargement of the prostate?
Doctor :   CAT scan of abdomen reason ?
User :   was having some pains around the berry button and my doctor reccommended I have one.
Doctor :   was any diagnosis arrived at that time ?
User :   no problem was detected, the problem went away thereafter.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   it is unlikely that the CAT scan done will involve the prostate
Doctor :   so it is better to have an consultation done from an surgeon or preferably from urologist
User :   o.k will make arrangements to have it checked out.
Doctor :   urine dribbling means there might be a chance that the bladder is not empited completely and it leads to urinary tract infection
User :   o.k. I will see an uroliogist about it
Doctor :   the second question is also related to the prostate
Doctor :   after an ultrasound evaulation and physical examination the cause can be ascertained
Doctor :   do not worry it is a very common problem and can be treated
