Really important question about my grampa's health. Why does he need to get up every night to use the bathroom?

In brief: Waking up
It is common for older men to wake at night to use the bathroom often from an enlarged prostate, which may be benign and sometimes treated with medicine.
However, other medical conditions can produce this symptom, so he should discuss with his doctor.
