Dutch term or phrase: een plasprobleem
Is this literally what it looks like - a problem with peeing?
It comes from an interview, and a person is being described as being of slim build, with a 'plasprobleem'. Would 'weak bladder' be appropriate?

Explanation:
could be.
Could indeed also be incontinence / but could also be (bed)-peeing problem...
I'm afraid we need a little more information...

Sorry I couldn't provide more context - a description of the man was all I had, given by a third party. He didn't elaborate further either.

problems urinating


Explanation:
I agree, more context would be helpful, but if the problem isn't specified any further (incontinence, painful, bed-wetting etc) you could keep it general.
