LUTS: You may be describing lower urinary tract symptoms. Check out IPSS (http://www.uptodate.com/contents/calculator-international-prostatism-symptom-score-ipss & http://www.urospec.com/uro/Forms/ipss.pdf). Then discuss w/your GP. Bladder infection, uncontrolled diabetes & diuretics (water pill) can also do this too. Finasteride & dutasteride can shrink prostate if enlarged. Alpha blockers help too.
