Its hard to set a prevalence for cystitis but half of the women had cystitis in their lives, and 30% of them have a recidivism of it.  Prostatic hyperplasia: The signs are common with cystitis (urinary frequency, incontinence, and pain), plus, there are urinary flow and ejaculation weakness. The diagnosis is set by signs and symptoms and also by PSA test (prostate specific antigen). It concerns old men (more than 50 years), about half of them suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia.
