I have a problem.
I'm 17, but I have the bladder of a 70-year-old man. I wake up at least once a night to go to the bathroom. Even small amounts of water make me have to pee. When I do have to go, I sometimes can't, or it doesn't all come out easily. And I often feel like i have to go when I don't.
I saw some ad on TV about people with enlarged prostates, and apparently their symptoms are similar to mine. Should I get mine checked out?

Yes you should. You can even get it done on the cheap. Just go down to the local Y and ask one of the creepy dudes for a prostate check. I'm sure he won't even charge you.

Enlarged prostate is the most likely answer. At your age the doc will probably write you a script for some basic antibiotics and it will be gone in no time. Unless of course you listened to recourse in which case get ready for a much more aggressive series of deep injections..........

Sounds good. I have a doctor so I think I can avoid the Y for now. Going there for BJJ class is enough.

No, I recommend you avoid medical attention for your obvious medical problem. Doctors are a plot by the Space Lizards to enfeeble humanity. All ailments actually magically go away by themselves.
Seriously, how many posts on this forum are like 'Bleeding from every orifice is starting to suck, I go see quack now maybe for not die? Or better die? Only internets can helps me decide'.

Dude, prostate and the bladder thingie are two types of **** you don't **** with.
Go see a doctor. Or just make an incision in the perianal section with a knife (use a mirror for guidance), then rub some dirt on it.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
