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?
