I can not hold my urine I do not have Prostrate problem. Please advise.

MBBS
Nephrologist,
I can not hold my urine I do not have Prostrate problem. Please advise.
You need to do an USG for KUB and an urine R/e M/e. Probably you have an enlarged prostate which is very common in your age. There are initial medications which can be started to control your problem. For that you need to consult me privately coz writing a medicine in an open forum is unethical for doctors as people can use this for self medication which should not be encouraged at all. Thanks stay healthy stay happy.
