Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) in Men

Published at : 18-12-2019 View : 10666

  A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection caused by bacterium Escherichia coli in any part of the urinary system. Most urinary tract infections (UTIs) affect the bladder and the urethra, which is the tube that drains urine from the bladder to outside the body. It's rare for men to have urinary tract infections. When a urinary tract infection (UTI) develops in men, it is usually considered complicated and more likely to spread to the kidneys and upper urinary tract.

Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) In Men

  Some people don’t have any symptoms with a urinary tract infection (UTI), which usually entails inflammation of the bladder (cystitis) and can also involve an infection of the lower or upper urinary tract, and in more serious cases the kidneys.



  The symptoms include:

   Cloudy urine with a strong odor

   Frequent urge to urinate

   A slow urine stream or urine leakage

   Painful urination

   A sudden need to urinate

   Blood in urine

   Inability to start urinating

  Men with complicated Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) can also experience one or more of the following symptoms:





   Back pain

Risk Factors of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) in Men

  The reason why urinary tract infection (UTI) is common to women is that they have a shorter urethra than men do, and it is closer to the anus. Both of these reasons explain why bacteria can reach the bladder more easily in men. Sexual activity also increases men's risk of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).

   Blockages of the urinary tract, such as those caused by a kidney stone or an enlarged prostate, can block the flow of urine and increase the risk of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).

   Men with an impaired immune system, such as those with diabetes and other conditions, have a decreased ability to fight off infections, which can increase the risk of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).

   Men who have a urinary catheter are also at increased risk for Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).

   Men who hold their urine for long periods may also be at risk for a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), urine has a high amount of glucose and proteins, which can allow bacteria to grow.
