Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Urinary urgency, frequency and incomplete evacuation of the bladder are symptoms typically seen in prostate enlargement. Prostate enlargement is a condition seen in elderly males usually after the age of 50 years. It occurs due to low levels of Testosterone hormones in the blood which is the result of advancing age.

I suggest you to get a Pelvic ultrasound scan (in full bladder and post void) which will confirm the condition and stage the growth which helps in management.

You may have to consult a Urologist with the Ultrasound scan report to analyze and place you on appropriate treatment.

Hope I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Regards,

Hello dr Samuel, I am having a slight shape pain at the left side of the bottom of my belly during erection. This most happens in the morning when I wake up with a high need of urinate. But, it also happens other time during erection. I am wandering if it has anything to do with the prostate? This for your help. Heribert

Okay here's my problem: I'm 36 years old, have polycystic kidney disease and a history of prostatitis (4 instances all mild). For the last three weeks I've been having prostatitis symptoms again (perineal pain, burning after urination, penile and testicular pain) Went to the urologist a week ago and found my prostate to be roughly 2.5 times normal size. Diagnosed with bph and prescribed proscar. My question is isn't it a little unlikely to have this kind of enlargement this soon? I've taken two doses of the proscar couldn't get an erection so I discontinued use. Doctor currently has me on antibiotics but all I want is relief. I refuse to be 36 and non-functional sexually. Are there any other options? I'm freaking out and very depressed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
