    Frequent UrinationmIs Driving me Crazy

    I am a 56-year-old male and weigh between 165 and 172 pounds (depending on how active I am). I am urinating during the daytime approximately two to three times per hour to once every hour 1/2. At night I often wake up and urinate a two to three times during the night. I have no pain and no problems urinating. My urination flow is strong and I have no issues with a post-urination dribble. It's to the point where I may have to stop three times to urinate during a one hour drive. I mean I really....

    Cystoscopy Question

    Hi all. I have had pain/over sensitivity near the frenulum area of the penis during ejaculation. This started about 3 years ago and I'm in my low 40s. The doctor wants to do a cysoscopy to see inside if anything is amiss. In the past, I have tested negative for STDs, but they can't rule out HPV since there is no test for males. Say I have HPV on the meatus of the penis... My #1 question: Will the scope they put in pick up that virus (i.e the virus gets on the scope) and move it into the bladder....

    Takes forever to pee/post micturition dribble

    For the past year or so I’ve started having issues dribbling pee after going pee. No issues holding it whatsoever before I decide to go, but afterwards, once I think I’ve finished and I’ve zipped up, I’ll notice a pee stain on my pants. Very frustrating. I assume the problem is the inability to completely void all my pee. To help, I’ve begun applying pressure to the prostate while I’m peeing and it does help get more out, but not entirely. So I follow this up with repeated tapping of the prostrate....

    Penis problems

    To start off, I am 17 and uncircumcised. I have no problems retracting my foreskin or placing it back over the head of my penis when I am not erect. However, when I am erect, I can't retract my foreskin and it is painful to try to do so, but I am able to place it back (I can retract foreskin while unerect, become erect, and be able to place it back). Is it normal to not be able to retract my foreskin while erect? If it isn't, how can I become able to? Also, if I am not erect, retract my foreskin....

    Bladder neck obstruction

    Hello! I am a mid-30s male who has been diagnosed with bladder neck obstruction. My primary symptom seems to be the need to urinate frequently (14-16 times during waking hours). After many different types of tests, it has been determined that my bladder retains ~330 ml of urine after I void, meaning that my bladder is holding ~950 ml of urine before I even begin to feel the urge to void (which, as I understand it, is ~90% more than it should be able to hold comfortably). I have been seeing a urologist....

    Surgery for an elderly man

    HISTORY: My father is 86. He had a prostatectomy maybe 15-20 years ago, then had an artificial sphincter installed. He used it until the urethral cuff eroded in 2015, when he had emergency surgery to remove the cuff. His urethra's healing was going well, and was being monitored his urologist in the hope of putting in a new cuff, but my father incurred some seizures and a serious head injury which put the whole plan on hold indefinitely. In 2016, Dad moved to a nursing home near me, and recovered....

    Son painful urination not a UTI

    My son is 14 he has high functioning Autism. He has painful urination that the Urologist has not figured out. He has had it for about 3 plus years. He does take Strattera but both his primary care Doctor and his Urologist say that can’t be the cause. It is listed as a rare side effect of Strattera. He has seen two other Urologist in the past and they just wrote it off as his Autism. My son is very intelligent a 4.0GPA and very articulate and he says no one believes him. It hurts everytime. He has....
