Could having kidney stones be related to prostate problems?

Could having kidney stones be related to prostate problems?

Probably not: If a person has an enlarged prostate and repeated infections it might increase the risk of certain stones. If the prostate is enlarged, it is possible that a kidney stone that passed might not make it out of the bladder and grow over time into a large bladder stone. ...Read more

Prostate (Definition)

The prostate is a gland that lies at the base of the bladder and surrounding a segment of urethra. It secretes a milky fluid that is discharged by excretory ducts into the urethra during the emission of semen.

Is it possible to have a kidney stone stuck around my prostate on the way out but with ni pain? Or even a tiny stone will cause pain?

Is it possible to have a kidney stone stuck around my prostate on the way out but with ni pain? Or even a tiny stone will cause pain?

If the stone is not: Causing continued blockage of the ureter and kidney and is just in the bladder then you wouldn't have pain. If the kidney and ureter remain chronically obstructed the kidney will stop excreting urine and pressure in the system will drop and pain fade. Long term obstruction will degrade future kidney function the distinction is important. ...Read more

I’ve had unpredictable, infrequent, & intense episodes of pain around epididymis >10 yrs. Prostate, STI/UTI, & kidney stones OK. How can I find cause?

I’ve had unpredictable, infrequent, & intense episodes of pain around epididymis >10 yrs. Prostate, STI/UTI, & kidney stones OK. How can I find cause?

Epididymus: The epididymus doesn't like to be messed with and once it has been inflamed, chronic discomfort there for years is not unusual in my experience. I assume that you have had ultrasound examination of the testicles as part of your evaluation. If you still have concerns, a urologist is best qualified to evaluate, advise and treat you. ...Read more

The prostate: Wraps around the urethra, the tube in the penis through which males urinate. Your stone came through that also. See your doc to rule out other possibilities. Glad you are on the mend. ...Read more

Uroflo came back at 10 but close to empty. Should I be worried about bladder/prostate cancer? Had kidney stone removed 15 yrs ago. Dr thinks stricture

Uroflow: The uroflow does not provide any information regarding cancer of any kind. It would be very unusual for a 35 year old to have either of those malignancies. The flow rate is dependent upon the volume of urine in your bladder prior to voiding and 10 cc/sec may very well be normal. ...Read more

Hi I have an enlarged prostate two weeks ago I passed four kidney stones now every time I pass urine I get a burning pain in my bladder?

May Have Infection: You may have an infection in your bladder or maybe some of the stone material is still in bladder. You need to see your doctor and be checked. Meanwhile I recommend you drink 6 oz. Cranberry juice and over one quart of water per day. Good idea to take magnesium citrate or magnesium malate once daily as it helps prevents stones.
Did you get the analysis of the stone constituents results? ...Read more

Docs, could a large kidney stone sitting in bottom of kidneys cause any problems if left there?

Yes, it can be, but.: Yes, a large may stay there quietly but surely will grow bigger. While it would be probably of no harm to watch it closely for 1-2 yrs, the risk of adding surrounding tissue damage from its increasing size and potentially possible infection will increase; so, for someone at 36, it is too long to watch, so I would recommend to get it out in time and practice stone prevention, and practice... ...Read more

Kidney stones since I was 10. Ct shows multiple stones greater in right with shotty retroperitoneal lymph nodes. Will stones cause lymph node problem?

Kidney stones since I was 10. Ct shows multiple stones greater in right with shotty retroperitoneal lymph nodes. Will stones cause lymph node problem?

LIkely unrelated: Shotty or mildly enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes noted on ct is a non-specific and not uncommon finding and usually of no clinical significance in an otherwise healthy person. Otherwise, causes include infection, inflammation, and malignancy. Unless you have had recent or recurrent episodes of painful stone passage with associated inflammation, I suspect the two findings are unrelated. ...Read more

I have a low potassium problem and kidney stones problem. Is my hypokalemia the cause of my kidney stones? Or the other way?

I have a low potassium problem and kidney stones problem. Is my hypokalemia the cause of my kidney stones? Or the other way?

Unlikely: A potassium-wasting problem might be due to kidney tubular / parenchymal damage from infection related to kidney stones, but in this case you would have been told of this by your physicians. If your potassium is actually significantly below the healthy range, this is serious and no physician would let it go without a full workup. You have a right to a thorough explanation from your doctor. ...Read more
