Retouching spots are showing on print. Is this a workflow issue?

Probably, assuming you mean retouching image data rather than spotting directly on print substrate - can you share a copy of your print showing the spots and original data before and after retouching

In general a print is much higher resolution than a screen, and will show retouching faults that are very hard to see on the monitor.
You could try using Nik's Color Efex Pro 4 (free with the Nik suite) and select tonal contrast. It's a sort of tonal contrast on steroids.
Use it to see processing errors. I use it to find dust spots in skies that don't show up well on the screen, but rear their ugly head in print.

I edited a file in PS via bridge. Did a Marque selection of a small central portion. Think I black masked the extraneous areas out properly. When I printed it from LR I saw a faint, but clear, thin black thin line of the marque. I also noticed a circular thin black line of what I am sure was a spot heat click. Did not also see it until on the print.

View in PS at Cntrl+1 will show defects, also try not to do this last (just before printing) not a "best" practice.
