Do I Need A Prostate Exam
zombielogic posted:
I am 43 years old, and last year I went for a physical and told my doctor of over 25 years I woke up three or four times a night to urinate, had a weak stream, and felt like I needed to pee a lot. he said i didn't need a prostate exam unless the symptoms were worse. Am i wrong to question that or am i just seeing too many commercials telling me I'm falling apart?

Here is a questionnaire that will give you a score for BPH symptoms.

Fill it out and if the score is high discuss it with your doctor.
