Has anyone mentioned a PSA test to you? It would have been done via a blood test.

Prostates continue to grow as men get older so enlarged prostate is very common and can push on the bladder / urethra causing difficulties in weeing or frequent loo trips, difficulty emptying properly, disturbed nights, etc. Although irritating, enlarged prostate (also called BPH) is benign but it is best to see a urologist to have other possibilities ruled out.

 

It would be better to keep your additional posts on your original thread so that members can see the replies you have had previously.
