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.

Based on your description it appears that you have Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Will you kindly submit some more information to come to a conclusion.

1) Are you Diabetic ?

I am a male, 53 yrs old, I had problems with erectile disfunction starting a year ago and now I have blood in urine,lfor the last 2 weeks. In the past I have been diagnosed with hematuria, but it only lasts a few days and will go away. Should I see a doctor?

It was discovered that I had microscopic hematuria after my most recent annual exam. The doctor gave me antibiotics for an abnormal vaginal culture. (possibly a UTI). After 10 days I had a recheck and still positive for RBC (+3). I had a CT of my kidneys and no stones or tumors. They now want to do a cytoscopy. I ve been having IBS symptoms lately, too. Can this cause hematuria?
