If the problem is Prostatitis, then you may also have pain during ejaculation or just have a general pain around your pelvic and genital area. If the problem is prostate cancer then you may have additional symptoms such as, anemia, weight loss, fatigue, and / or traces of blood in your urine and semen.
The prostate is a gland that is a part of the male reproductive system that wraps around the male urethra at its exit from the bladder
Common problems are BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia), acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis and chronic prostatitis (non-bacterial)
Prostate cancer is common in men over 50, especially in African-Americans and in men who eat fatty food and/or have a father or brother with prostate cancer
Symptoms of prostate problems (and prostate cancer) include urinary problems (little or no urine output, difficulty starting (straining) or stopping the urine stream, frequent urination, dribbling, pain or burning during urination), erectile dysfunction, painful ejaculation, blood in urine and/or deep back, hip, pelvic or abdominal pain; other symptoms may include weight loss, bone pain and lower extremity swelling
Prostate cancer is definitively diagnosed by tissue biopsy; initial studies may include a rectal exam, ultrasound and PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels
Treatments for prostate cancer may include surveillance, surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, vaccine therapy, and other medical therapies that can affect prostate cancer cell growth.

1 in 3 of All U.S. Women Affected
A new report released today by the National Women's Health Resource Center (NWHRC) reveals for the first time the high prevalence of pelvic health conditions among women in the United States at least one-third of all women (about 35 million) will be treated for a pelvic health condition by the age of 60, with the onset of these conditions highest among Baby Boomers.
Researchers estimate that even more women are affected but silently suffer. Their reluctance to consult a physician is attributed to lack of education and stigma associated with the conditions.
"Women learn about periods, pregnancy and menopause but are unprepared for what happens in between. The fact is, pelvic health conditions can happen at any age, particularly after a woman's had a baby" explained Elizabeth Battaglino Cahill, RN, executive director of the not-for-profit NWHRC.
Bladder weakness is one of the most common consequences of weak pelvic floor muscles and a staggering 1 in 4 women will experience it at some point in their lives.
Weak pelvic floor muscles can be due to lack of exercise. Like any other muscles in the body, if the pelvic floor muscles are not exercised they can become weakened.
Recent research revealed that 64% of women exercise once a week or less and only 5% of women exercise more than 3 times a week.
The Pelvicore Technique exercises can cure bladder weakness in up to 70% of women if they are performed regularly and yet nearly a quarter of women have no idea where their pelvic floor muscles are located.
CoreWellness, a Europe-wide campaign, is determined to help women get back in control of their bodies with the help of world expert, Professor Kari Bo of Oslo University. In this video she talks about why these muscles are important and exercise techniques to use.
