Hi Rajesh,
Thanks for writing your query.

Difficulty in passing urine can be due to enlargement of prostrate, commonly seen in elderly males.
Frequent urination leading to sleep disturbance can be seen in diabetes.

I would suggest that you should get your father examined clinically.

Also get following investigations done :-
1. Blood sugar (Fasting and PP).
2. PSA.
3. Ultrasound lower abdomen.

I hope this is helpful to you.
