The prostate is a small gland that is found only in men. It is about the size of a walnut and is located between the base of the penis and the bladder. When the man ejaculates, this gland will secrete a fluid that helps to protect the sperm. This helps to keep the sperm healthy and alive until it can make it to the egg.
This gland is prone to infections, however, and this can lead to some very unwelcome symptoms. The condition is relatively easy to treat with antibiotics, painkillers, and anti-inflammatory medication.
Surgery may be needed in some cases, but not usually. This article looks at 10 symptoms of a prostate infection.
Symptom #1: Cloudy Urine
Urine is the waste liquid that has been made by our kidneys from the process of filtering pathogens and other impurities from the blood. It is usually a yellow color although is sometimes colorless. Either way, healthy urine should always be clear regardless of the color.
If your urine is cloudy, it is a sign that something is wrong. Specifically, it could be that you have a prostate infection. Either way, it is something that you should arrange to get checked out as soon as you can. It could also be a sign of something more serious, so don’t delay seeing a doctor.
