It’s very common for a man to develop a prostate problem as he gets older.  Because changes in the prostate gland usually develop gradually, symptoms of a prostate problem may be hard to recognise, especially in the early stages.

Signs and symptoms of prostate problems

Symptoms include:

  • Difficulty or delay in starting urine flow
  • Stopping and starting during urination
  • After feeling finished, a little more urine dribbles out
  • A smaller, weaker urine flow
  • Taking longer to urinate
  • Feeling the bladder has not quite emptied
  • Needing to urinate more often, both night and day
  • Sudden strong urges to urinate
  • Painful urination
  • Painful ejaculation

Note: these symptoms are not always due to changes in the prostate and men with prostate problems do not always have these symptoms.
