I found out that I have a quite big prostate. It is possible that is why everynight I have to go to the bathroom at least 3 or 4 times? Thanks.

Possibly : BPH and enlarged prostate is one cause of nocturia , getting up at nite. You may not be emptying your bladder due to the enlargement, causing you to get up at nite.

Check your sugar: If you are urinating frequently at night it could be due to your sugar being high at night, or due to the enlarged prostate causing you to not empty your bladder completely.

PSA density: Can describe whether the size of your gland explains the psa. The negative biopsy says they did not find the cancer, but it can also mean they missed it. I would repeat the psa and establish a pattern. You should refrain from sex a week or 2 before repeating the psa. If the psa continues to rise, repeat the biopsies. ...Read more

Possibilities: Blood could be from one of the kidneys, a renal pelvis, a ureter(less common),the bladder or the prostate. For anyone to guess without test results would be meaningless. Most likely your first test will be a CT-IVP with contrast. Good luck to get good news soon. ...Read more

Bladder neck obstruc: At age 23 in a male, the problem is generally blockage at bladder neck. The prostate does not begin to enlarge till age 45. However bladder neck is a congenital condition ( you are born with it) , generally it manifests at your age. The symptoms are like prostate obstruction.The urodynamics and voiding cystogram are more conclusive, cystoscopic exam( looking in the bladder) is confirmatory. ...Read more
