What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?
Symptoms may range from mild to severe, and the most common ones
involve changes or problems with urination, such as:
a feeling that the bladder has not been emptied completely
a hesitant, weak stream
leaking or dribbling, known as incontinence
more frequent urination, especially at night, known as nocturia
an urge to urinate again soon after emptying the bladder the last time
urgency to urinate
Some men have no symptoms at all before suddenly finding themselves
totally unable to urinate. This condition is called acute urinary retention and may be
triggered by over-the-counter cold or allergy medicines that contain decongestants.
