Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you had occult blood in urine last summer. .You had done your Ultrasound scanning which revealed prostate size of 21cc with post void residue of 19cc.
These are normal values at your age and do not need active treatment at present..
The occult blood that you had could be due to infection in the prostate.
