Difficulty in passing urine, especially when the bladder is full (as happens in the ealrfy morning) is usually a symptom of a prostate enlargement. Benign enlargement of the prostate is common in your age. And you need to get an examination for a a diagnosis.
An urinary tract infection can also cause difficulty in passing urine but this will not necessarily occur in the morning but will be present more or less throughout the day. There will also be burning and increased frequency of passing urine.
I hope this helps.

I did forget to mention that in the morning I have been somewhat erect. Although thru-out the day this isn't the case. As to a tract infection ,there is no burning and i really don't have to go often. I do drink a lot of water and i have a very active lifestyle.
What do you mean by Benign enlargement of the prostate?
As I've stated, I just had a full exam and everything came back normal. At least that's what the doctor said.
The prostate is a gland that sits just under the bladder. The ureter , which is the tube through which urine passes from the bladder to the ureteric opening in the penis , passes though the prostate.
The protate tends to enlarge with age in most men. This is almost normal and requires no treatment unless there are symptoms. And unless there are symptoms such as difficulty in passing urine, your doctor may not necessarily check you for an enlargement of the prostate.
A benign enlargement means that it is not a dangerous condition.
