    Just going to the bathroom two or three times during the night wouldn't normally mean a prostate problem, especially if you've had a lot to drink before going to bed.  What tests have you had done?

    It probably is your prostate starting to interfere with your usual urinary routine, however, prostate disease is not exactly a precise diagnosis. I'm 66 and I have minimal cancer - monitored, but not requiring treatment -  and bladdder neck problems but not enlargement of any significance. I started with the symptoms you describe at about your age. Welcome to the Third Age of life! I agree that more tests would be the logical next step, but unless you are concerned about cancer (eg it's common in your family) it's hopefully just an inconvenience and your doctor may be right to wait and see how things develop. I sympathise with the sleep issues. However, by my calculation you only expect to sleep for three hours a night? Going to bed earlier may be worthwhile to compensate for the sleep disruption!
