In brief: Prostate; diabetes

As men age, the male hormone causes the prostate gland to enlarge; since it surrounds the urethra, it can narrow this tube & press into the bladder wall & prevent complete bladder emptying; thus the man feels the urge to pee more often & urgently.
One of the signs of diabetes is urinary frequency. Urinary tract infections (uncommon in men) are possible cause too. See doc for eval for these issues.

Agree with above, also urethral stricture disease or neurologic conditions can cause the same symptoms, check with your physician for further evaluation
