My grandfather was diagnosed with bladder obstruction couple of days ago. He is 66 years old and until few months ago never had any health problems. He was an active soccer player until he turned 34 and even after he continued playing for as long as he could thus his health condition was excellent. Now, his urinations are frequent, sometimes he cannot urinate at all, though he has an urge for it. Pain is also present, in his abdominal area. We are waiting for further diagnosis, to see what the cause of obstruction is. Please, tell me it is not that serious as it looks.

It depends on the cause of the bladder obstruction. It can be created by benign prostate hyperplasia (most common cause), cystocele, calculi (bladder stones), and some urethral scar tissue. Unfortunately, there is another possibility - tumor, the malign type. That is why additional examination is necessary, to exclude these mot dangerous forms of bladder obstruction. As for treatment of less dangerous types, there is use of catheter and surgical option.
