Do men get urinary tract infection, too?

Of course, urinary tract infections also affect men. However, they are less prevalent, although treatments tend to last longer.

Microorganisms can colonize the prostate of young and sexually active men. In addition, an increased prostate due to elevated testosterone levels in adult men leads to incomplete emptying of the bladder, leading to urinary tract infection.
