      If you are over the age of 45, this could be the result of an enlarged prostate. It will be best for you to make an appointment to see your doctor to confirm this diagnosis.

      Hello Mike, Thank you for your email. Could you give me a little more information to help. Have you been diagnosed with an enlarged prostate (BPH) by the doctor? Are you taking any medication ? I will try and get back to you as soon as I can.
