Possibly : BPH and enlarged prostate is one cause of nocturia , getting up at nite. You may not be emptying your bladder due to the enlargement, causing you to get up at nite.

Check your sugar: If you are urinating frequently at night it could be due to your sugar being high at night, or due to the enlarged prostate causing you to not empty your bladder completely. You should check your sugar when you go to sleep and when you wake up, to see if it is high. If the prostate is the problem, you will need to see a urologist. ...Read more

In april 03, 2013 i had a prostate biopsy because of a high psa 9.0. The biopsy result was negative for cancer but the prostate is 2 times larger than?

PSA density: Can describe whether the size of your gland explains the psa. The negative biopsy says they did not find the cancer, but it can also mean they missed it. I would repeat the psa and establish a pattern. You should refrain from sex a week or 2 before repeating the psa. If the psa continues to rise, repeat the biopsies. ...Read more

I had blood in urine 2days in 2000. Ive, cystoscopy, prostate all normal.Month ago 3 times blood in urine. Urine looks ok.Waiting for apt. Likely cause?

Possibilities: Blood could be from one of the kidneys, a renal pelvis, a ureter(less common),the bladder or the prostate. For anyone to guess without test results would be meaningless. Most likely your first test will be a CT-IVP with contrast. Good luck to get good news soon. ...Read more

Is masturbating a cause of prostatis?

Here are some...: If you have never had sexual intercourse, for an average healthy man at 16, the odd to have STD or UIT or prostatitis is extremely rare. By your presented clinical scenario, it would be a good idea to refrain from further masturbation for at least 2 weeks and see how such effort may help improve what you feel in the urethra at voiding, since repeated masturbation induces local congestion & strain. ...Read more
