The prostate gland is only found in men. It produces fluid that carries sperm to the testicles. If you have prostate cancer you may experience no symptoms, or you may experience frequent urination, trouble urinating, blood in your urine or pain when ejaculating. It can be detected through a blood test or rectal exam. Prostate cancer can be treated with surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy.
An enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, is when the prostate gland gets bigger. This occurs in almost all men as they age. It can affect the urethra’s ability to function normally if it gets too large. There’s no cure, but it can be treated. Options include making small lifestyle changes to relieve symptoms, medications and surgery.
A kidney stone is formed when chemicals in the urine crystallize. This will keep getting larger and larger until it’s passed out of the body through the urine. If it becomes too large to pass through the body, it will need to be treated. You may have kidney stones if you have severe pain in your lower back that spreads to your groin or abdomen, blood in your urine, urine that is cloudy or smells bad, and nausea. Treatments include simply drinking more water, medications, or surgery such as shock-wave lithotripsy, which breaks the stone into smaller pieces.
