Question: So I have been suffering from a dull "ache" on the lower left side of my abdomen/groin. Have been drinking more water, etc, but won't go away? Urination is more frequent and I have to get up at night at least once to urinate. No discoloration, etc.
Has been going on for months.

Brief Answer:
You should be investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Pain in the left lower quadrant of the abdomen /groin can be due to Left sided ureteric stone,Inguinal hernia.
Ultrasound abdomen will give a clue.Frequency of micturition can be due to Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).Ultrasound will confirm the size of the Prostate.
Till investigation, I prescribe anti spasmodic tablet containing Dicyclomine to my patients with similar complaints.
Please consult your doctor and proceed further.
Hope I answered your query.If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.

I have an enlarged prostate and with a PSA of 11.6. I had a biopsy a year ago (showed no cancer) and has a recent one this month (inconclusive) due to swollen prostate. The doctor said I have to wait for 6 months inorder for the swelling to subside. He gave antibiotic, Cifromax, but the prescription says that tendon problems could be the side effect, which I am having right now. I had been in this antibiotic since July 2013 on and off. I need to find out who is the best urologist here in Salt Lake and Layton area.

I am 62 yrs. old Male. Last night and this morning about 4-5 times I have found Blood stains in my Urine (cloudy & dark red color at the beginning and the end). When I pass Urine, at the beginning and the end I have a burning sensation (not severe) which goes away after few minutes. The tendancy to urinate again remains.

I am under treatment for enlarged prostate for the past 3 years, starting with 2mg Terazosin Tablets, which now increased to 3 mg for the past 6 months which controls well the frequency of my urination.

Recently, about 2 weeks back I had severe burning sensation when passing urine,along with body pain, fever etc. and when consulted with a GP , he told me that it might be UTI and prescribed for: Pyridium + paracetamol + ponstan250mg + Famotidine 20 mg for 3 days) + Augmentin 375 gms (20 tablets) for 5 days . For the past 1 week I was alright.

Except blood stain & slight burning , I do not have any other symptoms right now.

I would be very grateful for valued advice..

Thanks & Rgds
