43 yr old active male here. Last few months have been

43 yr old active male here. Last few months have been getting into racing mountain bikes, lost 15 lbs and have been riding 4-5 days a week for 2 hrs. I also take fish oil everyday. For the last couple years have been experiencing a slower urine stream, and a little trouble getting it all out. Recent the last coup,e months have had some lower abdominal pain right above or at my pubic bone, as well as the normal slow urine stream. I thought the lower pain was from running as i really noticed it after a softball game I played. Looked online recently and all this is also symtoms of prostate issues. I'm trying to make an appointment with a urologist but they either don't take my insurance or can't get an appointment anytime soon. How concerned should I be here and any advice on what this might be or what I should do? Should I go see my GP? Not sure but getting worried about it now. Help!
