Mercy Health urologists are well trained in providing prostate care and treatment for a variety of prostate conditions that primarily affect older men. As men get older, prostate health becomes increasingly important, and regular prostate screenings can help ensure that you are able to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle. The prostate gland – about the size of a walnut – is located below the bladder and in front of the rectum, wrapping around the upper section of the urethra. Because of its location, prostate issues can frequently cause problems with urination and sexual function.

One of the most common prostate conditions is prostate cancer, which occurs primarily in men over 55, and will affect about one in seven men during their lifetime. Other prostate conditions our physicians monitor include prostatitis, which is an inflammation or infection of the prostate that causes painful or difficult urination and ejaculation, and benign prostatic hyperplasia or prostate enlargement, which compresses the urethra, slowing or stopping the flow of urine. Make an appointment with a Mercy Health physician today to discuss your prostate health, and what you should be doing to stay healthy and monitor any existing or potential prostate issues.
