Answer

Although bladder infections are more common in women, men can get them, too. Signs and symptoms of bladder infection in men include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Strong, persistent urge to urinate (urgency)
  • Burning or tingling sensation during or just after urination (dysuria)
  • Low-grade fever
  • Cloudy urine with a strong odor
  • Blood in urine (hematuria)

Common causes of bladder infection in men include:

  • Enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH)
  • Kidney stones
  • Abnormal narrowing of the urethra (urethral stricture), which may result from urethral catheterization, surgery, disease or infection

Treatment of a bladder infection depends on the cause, but typically includes antibiotics.
