Thanks for your query to XXXXXXX
It needs confirmation by urine culture and sensitivity test of your mid-stream urine.
Then appropriate antibiotics can be given.
Calcification indicates long standing infection in the prostate. If your urine flow is less, kindly check the speed of urine flow by UROFLOW.
Then appropriate advice can be given.
Calcification by itself does not need any specific treatment.
Hope this helps. Kindly get back for queries if any.
