Question
Can someone in their mid 40's experience enlargement of the prostate?
Is it possible to be simply prone to NSU without an underlying cause ( I have had symptoms on and off all my life)? once very 5 years or so.
I currently have some ( invisible) blood in urine ( was tested yesterday but unable to get full results ( no sure if infection)as holiday period) - symptoms appear to me to be either infection of urinary tract, enlargment of prostate or baldder cancer. I am having mild burning and strong desire to urinate constantly. cannot sleep.
