Groin Problems

I have experienced problems urinating for quite a few years now. These include dribbling after finishing, poor stream and increased frequency of a night.
About 3 years ago I started having problems getting and maintaining erections which have slowly worsened to the point where I very seldom obtain any form of erection, never mind maintaining one!
Two years ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and have (within the last month) started taking Insulin to help.
My Cirrhosis was diagnosed 5 years ago and I have been alcohol free for 10 years now.

The main problem I am writing to you about is that of the urination which had gotten worse over the last 2 years. In conjunction with this I have started to get a pain in my left groin/hip. This started as just a uncomfortable feeling at the base of my scrotum, but has now spread up the crease between leg and torso towards the edge of my hip.
I have had a D.R.E (normal) and my PSA is about 2.5.
I am about to see a Urologist, but would like to have a bit of information to go along with.

Can you shed any light as to a possible cause?

  • Seeing the urologist is a very smart thing. Don't panic. There are some benign conditions that can cause these type of symptoms... BPH and prostatitis to name two. Your diabetes is a concern and a good uro will look at all these symptoms.I have suffered with prostatitis and hence know of some of the symptoms you are describing. Again, work with the uro and if you are not satisfied...get a second opinion.ja
