No burning sensationHe saw an urologist 2 years ago and they did an ultrasound and diagnosed him with BPH mild form.He was put on an alpha blocker but symptoms is still thereHe is doing a PSA this week to see how that goes but I guess is this normal at his age of 83?I heard that basically all men that are old are virtually having BPH or a slow form of prostate cancer and basically they do not even recommend PSA after 75What should I take out of this?He has another appointment with an urologist for December 6, but I guess now we are waiting for the results of the PSA which is probably going to be high because of BPH... I don't know what is best to do

A couple of years ago I was identified as having BPH. PSA

A couple of years ago I was identified as having BPH. PSA was normal. I did not start any medication. During a routine screening in May this year 3-5 RBC showed up in urineanalysis. U/S was normal(attached) and reconfirmed BPH. PSA was normal. I started a course of antibiotics for a week. Repeat tests after a week or so urine cleared up. Saw a urologist who started me on Omnic and asked to see me after six months. I felt last week that my daytime frequency has increased so did a urineanalysis yesterday, 4-6 RBC and trace + blood in the result again. Spoke to urologist . He feels this isn't anything to worry about. Said to switch to Duodart and repeat test after three months.
