Urinary Disorder – Prostate Gland

Urinary disorder of the the prostate gland is an organ made up of muscular and glandular structures which surround the neck of the male kidney bladder and the first part of the urethra – the tube that conducts the urine out of the kidney bladder to the urinary opening. However, in old age, enlargement (hypertrophy) of the prostate is very common, occurring in about one-third of all men over sixty years of age.

Its earliest symptom is frequent urination both during the day and at night with weak stream or just dribbling. The patient will have to get up several times during the night to empty the kidney bladder and also needs effort to pass urine. Sometimes it will be necessary to have the physician to drain the urine with a catheter. If the urine is retained, it exerts great pressure within the kidney bladder, inflammation of the kidney bladder – Cystitis – and kidney disease are likely to be the result. Headache, irritability, nervousness, lassitude and a general feeling of debility may be caused by hypertrophy of the prostate.
