Why Do Elderly men have difficulty passing urine?

ICD-10-CM Treatment Code R39.198: Other problems with urination

In this article, let's see that elderly people have trouble moving urine?

People over 50 years of age appear to experience enlargement of the prostate gland, which is known to be a part of ageing, such as graying of the hair or having weak knees (osteoarthritis).

The prostate gland enclosing the Urethra (Urinary Passage) enlarges and constricts the channel which prevents the movement of urine. It's named the Healthy Prostatic Enlargement. These people typically encounter duration, emergency, nocturnal, irregular emptying, sporadic, hesitancy and a slow stream. Clinical evaluation, ultrasonogram, uroflowmetry may assess the condition and degree of urinary obstruction.

Patients of minor resistance and little signs can be checked for prescription diagnosis of Alpha blockers (Terazosin, Doxazosin, Tamsulosin, Prazosin). Side effects like Dizziness, Lightness, Asthenia, are likely to be present. Surgery is clearly suspected in urinary bleeding, hematuria (blood in urine), bladder stones owing to inflammation and impaired kidney function.
