Most cysts of the prostate are not associated with any symptoms and they are incidentally found at the time of transrectal sonography. If you are having recurring symptoms of prostatitis, and if the cyst is fairly large, aspiration of the cyst via a transrectal sonographic approach could be easily accomplished. After aspiration, if your symptoms were to diminish or disappear than the cyst could be considered causative.

Hi Jay,

I have a cyst measuring 0.7x0.4 cm in median lobe. Can the cyst of this size be the cause of my prostatitic symptoms?

A 7mm cyst is a very small abnormality. It is extremely unlikely that this is the source of your prostatic symptoms. More likely, the median lobe of the prostate is the source of your problems.

A 6mm cyst is just an incidental finding. There is no reason to treat this

I'm 38 years old and I had a TRUS performed and the woman who performed it made a comment about "calcification" that she noticed. I asked if I should be concerned and she wasn't sure. When the report was sent to my physician, there was no mention of the calcification and everything was described as normal, but the actual image was not provided. I have been experiencing urinary problems for about 6 months and I think this may be the cause. I requested the actual image on a cd and noticed that the calcification she originally pointed had been measured. I don't have the measurement handy right now, but it seemed to be small, but near the center of the prostate. I am wondering if this could be pressing against my urethra and causing my urgency, frequency, poor bladder capacity, weak stream, hesitancy, etc. I am bringing the cd to my urologist next week to show him. I would appreciate any feedback on this. I've been through countless tests, meds, physical therapy and haven't seen much improvement so I am really hoping this could be the answer and hopefully it is treatable.

i have been treated with cypril and it worked. the problem came back 2 months later and cypril, which i was given 20 pills twice daily, didn't work. no pain or weak, urgency symptoms or anything else. i do have irritation after urinating and annoyance in that area when lying down ..like a stuck golfball. it comes and goes annoying/irritating day to day. i cut back caffeine/chilli peppers. what do you think?
