What are the symptoms of BPH?
The most common symptoms are difficulty urinating, needing to urinate frequently including during the night, and a weak or interrupted urine stream. These symptoms also occur with prostate cancer, so being evaluated is critical.
What is a PSA test?
PSA stands for prostate-specific antigen, and a PSA blood test evaluates the amount of the antigen in a man’s blood.
High levels of PSA have been linked with prostate cancer or an increased risk for cancer.
PSA tests are routinely ordered for older men and often used in conjunction with a digital rectal exam (DRE) to provide a full assessment of prostate cancer risks.
What symptoms do UTIs cause?
UTIs are most common among women, but they can also occur in men.
Some of the most common symptoms include:
UTIs can quickly spread to the kidneys where they can cause serious damage, and getting care at the first sign of symptoms is very important.
UTIs can usually be treated with antibiotics, but sometimes, they can recur. Taking the complete course of antibiotics is important to help prevent recurrence.
When UTIs occur frequently, additional evaluations may need to be performed to determine if an obstruction or another issue is contributing to their occurrence.
