Blood in the urine (or hematuria) can be caused by many factors, including urinary tract infection, kidney stones, bladder cancer, prostate cancer and kidney cancer. If you have blood in your urine, you should call the office immediately to schedule an appointment so you can be evaluated.
In its earliest stages, prostate cancer typically causes no symptoms. However, as the disease progresses it can cause symptoms such as:
difficulty emptying the bladder or interrupted urine stream
blood in the urine or semen
pain when urinating or ejaculating
difficulty attaining an erection
leaking urine when coughing, sneezing or laughing
Because it causes no symptoms in its early stages, having regular prostate exams is essential for identifying the disease and initiating treatment.
No, in most cases, an enlarged prostate is not related to cancer and occurs as a result of the body's aging process in a condition known as benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) or an infection called prostatitis. An enlarged prostate can cause many of the same symptoms as prostate cancer. Today, there are many options available to treat an enlarged prostate so men can feel more comfortable and more confident.
