Many men will experience prostate enlargement as they get older, some to the point that it will cause urination problems. Dr. Michael Naslund, director of the Maryland Prostate Center at the University Maryland Medical Center, said there are many options for treatment, including surgery, drugs and lifestyle changes. What is the prostate and how does it function in the body? The prostate gland sits beneath the bladder in men. The primary function of the prostate in a young man is to produce some of the fluid in the ejaculate and to transport urine and sperm out of the body through the urethra.

Q: Even though my wife is still in her 20s, she has been treated three different times for what her doctor said was an infection of her urinary tract. Could you explain why she was given medications for only a few days the first two times, but with her most recent bout was kept in the hospital overnight, subjected to a number of tests and then told to take antibiotics for two weeks?A: From your description of the treatments, it is likely that your wife had two different types of urinary tract infections: cystitis on the first two occasions and acute pyelonephritis on the last.

About a year ago, I came across a letter by a physician in the Lancet. One of his patients had leg cramps and the doctor recommended what many Brits took in India -- a glass of tonic water at bedtime.He said there was enough quinine in tonic to help with this problem. The patient's wife later told the doctor that it had really done the trick. However, she did have one complaint: It seems that their liquor bill had increased, since the patient had decided to add a shot of gin to the tonic before drinking!

Q: My doctor diagnosed benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) as the cause for my difficulties in urination. Because my symptoms were not too troublesome and I wanted to avoid surgery, treatment with finasteride was tried for about six months; but there was little improvement in my symptoms. Now my doctor has suggested Hytrin, a drug that is supposed to work in a different way than finasteride. I would appreciate information on this drug.A: BPH is an enlargement of the prostate gland that obstructs the flow of urine as it passes from the bladder through the prostate by putting pressure on the urethra.

I heard that there was a study about possible bad effects of low cholesterol in children. I am concerned about this because my teenagers have cholesterol levels of 103 and 110. What were the problems? I would like to know where this was published so I can share it with their pediatrician. For years, there have been puzzling reports that low cholesterol levels may be associated with impulsive and violent behavior in adults. Animal studies (in dogs and monkeys) have also found a link between low cholesterol and aggressive behavior.
