One Medical Condition That Causes Frequent Urination Especially In Men

Frequent urination is simply a state whereby a person has the urge to use the rest room often. It can be discomforting and can be caused by a whole lot of things.

Apart from having any underlying illnesses, frequent urination can be as a result of taking too much liquid substances.

However, there are cases where it has to do with some ailments which we may not be aware of. This article hereby, discusses a medical condition that can cause frequent urination and we are taking men as the case study here.

What we have on the list is a disease known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH): This is a disease which attacks the Prostrate glands in men. We may know that every man has these glands which help in seminal fluid secretion.

Prostrate disease usually affects men as they advance in age especially, when they are above 50 years. However, this disease is one of the major causes of frequent urination because, it has to do with the bladder where urine is stored.

Early detection and management can go a long way to save some other serious health damages.
