Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

You need to get your PSA levels tested. The prostate is moderately enlarged and you may be put on medications to treat benign prostate enlargement. Any infection of the urinary system including prostate also needs treatment. If there is urinary retention and inability to void bladder completely then discussing surgical treatment options with an urologist might help.
