hey my doc has written some test the one which i remember is ..PSA..To rule out cancer as a cause of urinary symptoms, your doctor may recommend a PSA blood test. PSA, a protein produced by prostate cells, is frequently present at elevated levels in the blood of men who have prostate cancer...MINE WAS NEGATIVE..

My father also had his prostate enlarged. He used to go to pass urine several times in a day and also at night. GHe saw a urologist and the scan showed that his prostate was enlarged. Our family doctor advised to check with urologist. Urologist gave some tablets which helped him to control this. Now he is fine

Prostate gland is one which is present only in males, if it enlarges it can result in BPH. it enlarges in old age people, its secretions are use full for sperm production.

I am a 29 year old male and for the past couple of weeks I ve been having issues when I urinate and it s starting to worry me. I constantly have to push, or strain, in order to urinate. If I don t push when attempting to urinate then my urine just trickles out or doesn t come out at all plus it takes a really long time for me to start urinating and when I finally do start to urinate for some reason it will stop then go then stop again. Also it feels like I was not able to empty my bladder completely. I m also suffering from the constant urge to urinate and urinary frequency. It feels like I always have the urge to urinate. I have to get up and urinate 3 or 4 times at night. My urine looks a little darker than normal, but it s not cloudy nor does it smell. It kinda burns when I urinate. It s like an odd feeling. When I urinate I feel this burning, tingling, pins and needles sensation. I don t know how to explain it. All of these urinary issues that I m having is driving me crazy. I never had a bladder or urinary tract infection before. I passed kidney stones about a year ago and they were small. I was wondering what might be the cause of all these urinary problems. Why do I have to strain all the time and why do I have this constant urge to urinate? Do I have a a UTI or some other type of infection?

I have had an MRI .it said that I have spondilosis in upper spine especially in 6/7, MRI also mentioned signal abnormality too. I am a cleaner and I Hoover and mop for around 6 hours per day. By the end of the day my neck is so sore, my arm feels sore and makes me feel hot and sick. I have been referred to the spinal team, is there any way I can prevent this pain at work please? There are two areas which require cleaning but really need the machine to do it....so I do my best with a small mop as machine has been broken for a year

I had unprotected sex about a couple of weeks ago. After that time I have been realizing when I have to urinate rather than it just being a normal part of the day. Now it is around time for my period and I think I should just wait to see if my period comes but I have been having slight discomfort. My urine is a very yellow color and I have been having little yellow discharge after I urinate. Recently I wiped before urination to check if there was spotting but there was a clear mucus like discharge before urination then after urination there would be this yellow stuff. I assumed that I have a yeast infection or maybe a urinary infection. I'm not scheduled to see a doctor until May 5 so I was wondering if I should wait things out or take immediate action? Any ideas?
