I'm a male approaching 50. For a while I've had some symptoms of prostate enlargement - such as weak flow and getting up to urinate in the night. At one point I was up 2 or 3 times a night, though it settled down to once a night.
Then I suddenly started getting "dribbling after peeing" which lasted maybe a month. Then it all went away - the dribbling and the getting up in the night. Now not only didn't I have to get up in the night, but even when I woke up in the morning I was in no rush to get up and pee - I could have a lie in. So cool, I thought, problem solved.
But after a month or so it's now it's back - both the getting up (once a night every night for a week) plus the dribbling.
"Enlarged prostate" seems like something that gradually gets worse with age, and maybe slowly gets better if you take some kind of action to fix it (maybe vitamins, healthy diet or whatever) - but it doesn't really seem like the sort of thing that should come and go.
So is this normal? Could it be something else with similar symptoms?
