    Only men have prostate gland and it surrounds that part of the tube which carries urine out of the body from the bladder. When cells in this gland start growing without any control and get clumped with each other, they form tumors. It is then the chances of prostate cancer arise in the men's body. These tumors can be malignant, and they can kill the healthy tissues of your body and spread to other body parts.

    Chances of getting prostate cancer
    The chances of getting prostate cancer are among men who are over 65 years of age. The ratio of getting prostate cancer is one among six men. It is more common in black men compared to white men, Hispanic men and Asian men. Moreover, when there is history of prostate cancer in your family, the chances of having prostate cancer increases.

    Now, let's find out the symptoms that will let you know that you may have prostate cancer.

    Symptoms of prostate cancer
    There are different stages of prostate cancer and depending upon the stage you can get to know various symptoms.
    However, the problem is that in the early stages there are no specific symptoms of prostate cancer. Certain urinary symptoms may suggest that you are suffering from prostate cancer. Such symptoms are:
    - Frequent urination
    - Difficulty with starting urine flow
    - Urination that burns
    - Blood in the urine
    - Weak flow, or 'dribbling'

    These symptoms always do not mean that you are suffering from prostate cancer, as these symptoms may be there when your prostate gland gets enlarged.

    Another symptom associated with prostate cancer is pain in different parts of the body. When the cancerous cells spread they cause pain around the prostate gland. There can be pain in the hips, pelvis, and lower back or upper thighs.

    Prostate gland also plays a major role in the male reproductive system. Thus, if there is any sexual dysfunction, there are chances that it may be due to prostate cancer. If you are having a problem in getting an erection or maintaining it also becomes difficult, one problem can be prostate cancer. Sometimes you may experience painful ejaculation, which also points towards chances of having prostate cancer.

    Thus, if you experience any of the above mentioned symptoms, its right time to get to your physician. Remember that as there are no early symptoms, the moment you find any of these symptoms, you should pay a visit to your Doctor.

    A bladder is an organ that stores urine in the body. A prolapsed bladder occurs when the tissue present between the vagina and the bladder is stretched, resulting in a bulge in the bladder. This can result in complications such as leakage of urine and difficulty in passing the same. Based on the severity of the damage, it is classified into four categories -

    Mild: a small area of the bladder bulges in the vagina
    Moderate: the bladder bulges near the vaginal opening
    Severe: protrusion of the bladder occurs through the vaginal opening
    Complete: the entire area of the bladder protrudes completely from the body via the opening of the vagina

    The symptoms of a prolapsed bladder are: 

    Feeling of intense pressure around the pelvic area
    Infections related to the bladder
    Pain during sexual intercourse
    Tissues bulging out through the vaginal opening
    Pain in the lower back region

    Prolapsed bladder is caused by:

    Childbirth: it can cause ligaments and pelvic muscles to weaken thus increasing their vulnerability to a prolapsed bladder
    The chances of this disorder increases when one is overweight
    Lifting heavy things
    Strain caused by bowel movements 
    In some cases, it may result from a chronic cough
    Menopause, as it limits production of estrogen which helps in maintaining healthy tissues in the vagina

    It is advised to check with a medical professional if you experience these symptoms, as a prolapsed bladder can worsen with time if left untreated.

    What you should know about urinary incontinence.

    Urinary incontinence is the inability to hold urine in the bladder because of loss of control of the bladder. The severity may range from temporary to chronic, depending on the cause of this disease. Urinary incontinence is more common in women than men and can be categorized into three types.

    Types and symptoms of urinary incontinence

    Stress incontinence: this incontinence may occur while participating in any physical activity such as a sudden cough, laugh, sneezing or exercising. The stress here refers to the sudden physical pressure that a person experiences, leading him/her to urinate involuntarily.

    Urge incontinence: a sudden, involuntary contraction of the muscular wall of the bladder causes an urgency to urinate. This urgency can be formed by a sudden change in position or sex.

    Overflow incontinence: this is more common in men with prostate gland problems, damaged bladder or blocked urethra. The person has an urge to urinate frequently but in small amounts.

    Causes of urinary incontinence

    There are a number of causes of urinary incontinence ranging from aging to cancer and physical damage to the neurological disorder.

    1. Aging: with age, the bladder muscle weakens and the chances of incontinence increases.

    Damage: since the pelvic muscles support the bladder any damage to it (surgery or any procedure to remove the uterus) can lead to urinary incontinence.

    2. Enlarged prostate: enlargement of the prostate gland in older men may give rise to this condition.

    Cancer: urinary incontinence may be associated with untreated prostate cancer, which is a side effect of treatments for it.

    3. Menopause: estrogen is a hormone that keeps the lining of bladder and urethra healthy. After menopause the production of estrogen is decreased, increasing the chances of urinary incontinence.

    4. Prevention: urinary incontinence is not preventable but some steps can be taken to reduce the risk of it. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, avoiding smoking, practicing pelvic floor exercises, avoiding caffeine and acidic foods and eating more fiber to prevent constipation can help decreasing the risk of it.
