dear Indrasan,he may have enlarged prostate,due to which he is not able to pass urine completely and some urine remains in the bladder which leads to frequent urination.please visit your doctor and get a urine examination and ultrasound done for diagnosis.bye and take care.

Hi my 5 month old son has symptoms of allergic asthma. I myself was diagnosed about a month ago. I m using a puffer now and I was wondering what I can do to help him sleep at night. he wakes up coughing at least 4-5 times every night and seems always congested and has been having a hard time drinking his bottles. other than using saline drops and a nasal aspirator, I ve also closed off his heat vent (that is the cause of the allergy, we heat our house with a wood furnace) is there anything else I can do? are there medications that can help?

I had prostate cancer 3 1/2 years ago Gleason 3+4 =7 PSA 4.3 cancer contained in 1/2 of prostate no spreading. I elected seed implant For the next 3 1/2 years PSA never dropped but rose to over 7. Doctor was examining alternatives as he thought the seed implant failed... He was on vacation so I ran the PSA one more time and WOW! it shows a drop to we might have done something unnecessarily if I did not run the PSA . I know ther are bounces.. but a drop that fast. Is that possible and maybe some idea why and how Steve

Hello dr Samuel, I am having a slight shape pain at the left side of the bottom of my belly during erection. This most happens in the morning when I wake up with a high need of urinate. But, it also happens other time during erection. I am wandering if it has anything to do with the prostate? This for your help. Heribert

Okay here's my problem: I'm 36 years old, have polycystic kidney disease and a history of prostatitis (4 instances all mild). For the last three weeks I've been having prostatitis symptoms again (perineal pain, burning after urination, penile and testicular pain) Went to the urologist a week ago and found my prostate to be roughly 2.5 times normal size. Diagnosed with bph and prescribed proscar. My question is isn't it a little unlikely to have this kind of enlargement this soon? I've taken two doses of the proscar couldn't get an erection so I discontinued use. Doctor currently has me on antibiotics but all I want is relief. I refuse to be 36 and non-functional sexually. Are there any other options? I'm freaking out and very depressed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
