In brief: Needs to be checked

There are many reasons for a man to get bladder infections.
These could include an enlarged prostate, urtehral stricture, and kidney stones just to name a few. You need to see a urologist to have the appropriate testing.

In brief: Male UTI

Uti's in males are uncommon; may be due to structural deformities (usually picked up at early age).
In older men, may be due to partial outlet obstruction from enlarged prostate; may prevent complete emptying of bladder; residual urine gets infected. Nerve injuries affecting bladder function may prevent complete emptying & require catheterization. Indwelling foley catheters can b cause. See pcp.
