What common prostate symptoms can indicate?

There are various prostate conditions that may or may not exhibit symptoms.  Less than half of men with prostate problems (including prostate cancer) will have symptoms, and some of the most common prostate symptoms include:

straining to urinate
difficulty in starting to urinate
weak stream
incomplete bladder emptying
inability to urinate
urinary dribbling
painful urination
blood in urine
frequent urination or strong urgencies
difficulty in having an erection
painful ejaculations
What These Symptoms Can Indicate:
Your doctor can determine if you have a prostate abnormality based on your exhibited symptoms. There are several common prostate conditions and they can require different approaches to diagnosis and treatment:
Acute or Chronic Prostatitis
These conditions are caused by bacterial infections in the prostate. Acute or chronic infections are the most common prostate problem for men under the age of 50. Acute infections have rapid onsets with painful urination whereas chronic infections can be more subtle but also more difficult to treat.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
This condition, also known as an enlarged prostate, is the most common prostate issue for men over the age of 50.  BPH can cause the prostate to block the flow of urine through the urethra, making urination hesitating or frequent.
Prostate Cancer
Cancer of the prostate often presents with no early symptoms and it is one of the most common forms of cancer in American men.  However, early intervention leads to high treatment rates.
