Frequent Urination Topic Guide
Frequent Urination: Having to urinate more than eight times a day or waking up to go to the bathroom more than once a night is considered frequent urination. Symptoms include urgency, frequency, hesitancy, dribbling, straining, hematuria, and urinary incontinence. Treatment of frequent urination depends upon the underlying cause.
Enlarged Prostate A man's prostate gland usually starts to enlarge after he reaches age 40 years or middle age. This condition is called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or benign prostatic hypertrophy. As the prostate gland grows, it may press on the urethra and cause difficulty with urination. Medications and surgery are available if an enlarged prostate is causing problems.
