Access world-class care

Birmingham Prostate Clinic is part of GenesisCare, the UK’s leading independent provider of cancer care. Together, our consultants provide a complete pathway to expert care for cancer and benign conditions at a range of private hospitals in the West Midlands and the wider UK.

Prostate problems

The prostate is a gland found between the penis and the bladder, and plays an important role in male fertility by producing a protein called prostate specific antigen (PSA).

These symptoms are often caused by the prostate getting bigger, either because of age-related prostate growth, cancer, or an inflammation causing it to swell.

Common prostate symptoms include:

  • Difficulty stopping or starting urinating
  • Needing to urinate more frequently especially at night
  • Straining when urinating
  • Weak urine flow
  • Feeling like your bladder isn’t empty after urinating
  • Leaking urine before or after going to the toilet

If you have any of these symptoms, see a specialist as soon as possible. It doesn’t always mean prostate cancer, and but could be due to a benign condition such as an enlarged prostate or prostatitis.

But it’s important to rule out anything serious, and the sooner you have a diagnosis, the sooner you can access specialist care. 

Whatever the cause, you don’t need to put up with uncomfortable symptoms. There are effective treatments ready to help, even if you’ve tried something else before.

Birmingham Prostate Clinic are a team of leading urologists and oncologists, who specialise in diagnosing and treating prostate, bladder and kidney conditions.
