I have recently developed a condition where I need to

Resolved Question:

I have recently developed a condition where I need to urinate every 2 hours and at night when lying down it feels like I need to urinate all the time. During the day when I urinate the flow is normal and not painful, just not much volume I assume due to the frequency. I have been tested for a UTI and it was negative, do you have any idea what it could be.

A urine test. No other medicines or medical conditions. I would also add the sensation when lying down is in my penis rather than bladder

Sorry for the delay

I would suggest that you should have a digital rectal exam and an ultrasound for prostate. Enlargement of prostate can lead to such symptoms. So an ultrasound for prostate will help in finding out the exact size of your prostate gland.In the initial stages of prostate enlargement symptoms can occur at night only

Good luck

I need to pee far more regularly during the day but the feeling of needing to go is constant at night. The worry is cancer, is that a possibility?
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 1 year ago.

Can you please clarify which cancer you are worried about ? I can address your query if you provide this information

prostate cancer
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 1 year ago.

The usual age group in which such cancers occur is 60 years and above although exceptions can occur. The good thing is that you have normal urinalysis. As I have mentioned this need a digital rectal examination and ultrasound first of all. Rectal examination will find out any abnormality in the size of prostate. If it is normal then chances of a tumor related to prostate are very low

Good luck
