Male Cystitis Symptoms

Male Cystitis is a common urinary tract infection which is caused by E.Coli.

Urinary tract problems in males represent a range of conditions from infections, inflammation, and urine outlet obstruction to congenital malformation, trauma, or neoplasm. Any part of the renal/urological/reproductive tract can be involved, and symptoms may often be localized to a single site. Symptoms may also be vague, reflect the involved area, or be referred from the actual site of involvement. Some common urinary tract problems which are prevalent in males are urethritis, prostatitis, cystitis, and irritation of the urethra.

Cystitis is a urinary tract infection (UTI) localized at the bladder. It is usually due to bacterial infection, but may be the result of viral or fungal infections, toxic chemicals, drugs or radiation. Cystitis is more prominent in women and is less common in men. Community acquired infections often begin in the urethra, move to the prostate, and then to the bladder.

Cystitis in men results from ascending infection of the urethra or prostate. It may also be seen secondary to urethral instrumentation. The most common cause of recurrent cystitis in men is chronic bacterial prostatitis. Cystitis is produced by the multiplication of Escherichia coli in the bladder urine. The symptoms may be severe depending upon the infection. Most common symptoms include:

  1. It often starts out as “irritable bladder” with the urgency to urinate accompanied by small urinary volumes. It can result from an irritation of the mucosal surface of the urethra.
  2. At the extreme, male with cystitis may experience compelling urge to urinate up to 80 times per day, suffering from constant disabling pelvic pain and intractable insomnia.
  3. The patients may experience rise in body temperature, dysuria, and suprapubic tenderness.
  4. Change in mental status due to problem in passing urine.
  5. Discomfort and pain in the abdomen.
  6. Perineal, scrotal, and groin discomfort and pain at the base of the penis without penile tenderness. Although patients often have a combination of voiding symptoms and pelvic pain, in most cases one of the two symptom complexes tends to predominate.
  7. Urinary hesitancy or retention, difficulty maintaining their urinary stream, or the need to apply pressure to their lower abdomen or “sit forward” on the toilet in order to urinate.
  8. Fowl smelling urine.
  9. Burning or tingling sensation while passing urine.
  10. Traces of blood in urine.

Current Diagnosis for male cystitis:

• Urinary frequency with low urinary volumes.

• Pain with voiding.

• Pain in Penis and having difficulty during intercourse.

• Chronic pelvic, urethral, or genital pain.

• Nocturia.

• Flares of pelvic or genital pain with exercise or car rides or after the ingestion of certain foods.

These are some of the common symptoms associated with male cystitis, but in certain cases some typical symptoms are also found.
