Frequent need for urination and dribbling afterwards? Male, 65

In brief: Likely BPH

Frequency and post-void dribbling can be symptoms of benign prostate enlargement, although there are many other possibilites.
Being that you are a 65 year old male, BPH is a likely diagnosis, although you should have a urinalysis to ensure no infection or diabetes and a post-void residual urine determination as well as a prostate exam. Another possibility is overactive bladder.

In brief: Possible BPH

These symptoms can be a sign of BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy) and you should see your doctor to have the prostate checked.
The best doctor for this is a urologist. They can check the prostate size and function using several tests, including psa blood test, dre (digital rectal exam of the prostate), pvr (post void residual), prostate ultrasound and possibly others. There are meds that can help.
