    Hello, sorry about that. Do you have any other symptoms? Any pain on urination? Frequent urination, blood in urine, abdominal swelling, feeling of not completely emptying your bladder?

    Ok. As you are just 39, it is unlikely to be an enlargement of the prostate gland but it may be an infection of the prostate or a narrowing of the bladder neck. You can start by doing a urine microscopy and culture test to check for infection . But you would need to see a urologist.
