How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Does anything make it better or worse? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Weak urine flow? Difficult to start urination? Do you feel you can not empty your bladder? Dripping after you urinate? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history? What tests and imaging studies have you had recently?
