Difficult to Urinate in Men

Published at : 22-10-2019 View : 8461

  Difficulty urinating can be a result of anatomical abnormalities within the genitourinary tract. In men, enlargement of the prostate gland, due commonly to benign prostatic hyperplasia and less commonly to prostate cancer, can cause difficulty urinating. It is most common in men in their 50s and 60s because of prostate enlargement.

Causes of Difficult Urination in Men

  Infection and inflammation: Inflammation of the head of the penis, the glans (balanitis), an infection of the prostate (prostatitis) or an abscess of the prostate may result in difficult to urinate.

  Blockage: The blockage of the urethra in men is enlargement of the prostate. In males, the prostate gland surrounds the urethra. If the prostate becomes enlarged, which is common in older men, it may compress the urethra, causing resistance or blockage to the outflow of urine.

  Nerve problems: Disruption of the nerves between the bladder and brain can cause you to lose control of your bladder function. The problem might lie in the nerves that send messages back and forth or in the nerves that control the muscles used in urination, or both. Men who suffer from such conditions is referred to as having a "neurogenic bladder."

  Surgery: Difficult urination is a relatively common problem after surgery because it can be a direct result of the anesthetic or the type of operation and relative immobility after surgery can also contribute.
