Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) describe many different urination problems in men. You may hear your doctor use the term LUTS if you have:
- Poor or intermittent urine stream
- Straining to pee
- Sudden urge to urinate
- Waking up many times at night to pee
- Having to pee frequently
- Feeling like you can’t fully empty your bladder
You are more likely to experience LUTS if you are over age 50. Your University of Miami Health System urologist can help you identify the cause of LUTS and decide which treatment is right for you.
