Difficulty Urinating | Causes, Symptoms, and Diagnosis
Difficulty in urination can occur due to various reasons such as anatomical abnormalities in the genitourinary tract or neurological/muscular conditions that affect the bladder. For instance, conditions like enlargement of the prostate gland or prostate cancer can cause difficulty in urination in males. In females, bodily stresses like childbirth can cause pelvic organ prolapse, which can further cause urinary difficulty. Difficulty urinating might occur as a side effect of certain medications. Scar tissue formed after surgery or trauma or a urinary tract infection can also impede urine flow.
