In brief: Night urination

You refer to urine flow which becomes more difficult in men as the prostate enlarges with age.
It pushes on the urine outflow tract cause the symptoms of urgency, night frequency, slow and low flow and incomplete emptying of the bladder. Evaluation by your urologist to rule out cancer is needed. Meds to increase flow are available which can help.

In brief: Could be BPH

You describe common symptoms of BPH or bothersome urinary symptoms caused by enlarged prostate.
Symptoms include weak stream, difficulty starting stream, hesitency, urinary frequency/urgency, nocturia. I would see your medical doctor. He will likely perform an examination of your prostate and may consider starting medication to treat your bothersome urinary symptoms.
