Urinary tract infections (UTI) are a less common symptom of BPH. Sometimes, the enlarged prostate can block the flow of urine from the bladder, preventing it from emptying completely. This gives bacteria the opportunity to develop in excess and lead to infection. The treatment for a UTI is usually a course of antibiotics, but if the UTI is secondary to the BPH, your doctor will treat the primary condition first.
