Urinary Disorders

Problem Urinating

12/30/2008

Question:

My husband is only 32 and is having problems urinating. Symptoms including trouble starting and trouble getting a constant stream. He`s also had pain in his upper thigh under buttocks for some time now. What could this be?

Answer:

I would suggest that your husband be seen by a urologist and evaluated. It is difficult to diagnose with a limited history, no labs or exam. A bladder infection, stone, urethral stricture or prostatitis (infection or inflammation) are some of the possible causes for these symptoms.
