In brief: Several ways

Treatable prostate disease causes bladder infections in men; all people do well to drink plenty of water as they are able, and cranberry juice or its anthocyanin component actually works for prevention and treatment -- one of the few natural cures that's evidence-based.
If stones are present, get them removed. If intractable or atypical, cystoscopy is indicated.
