I recently started dribbling when urinating. In the exam 6 months ago, my prostate was slightly enlarged. I have to urinate once in the middle of the night. It is not as heavy a stream as it used to be. I am 56 years old, 5' 11, 150 lbs, I have a healthy diet. I run 8 miles/day, am a non-smoker, non-drinker. I drink 6 to 8 cups of unsweetened green tea per day. Blood pressure 100/60, heart rate 40 bps.
