Brief Answer:
Urgency is mostly due to fibros Prostate.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts and report of your ultrasound scanning posted it appears that you have urgency for urination which is mostly due to Fibrous Prostate.and Bladder Neck Obstruction.

Significant Residual volume of urine (71 ml) strongly suggests bladder outlet obstruction .

Please consult your urologist for endoscopic evaluation and to explore the efficacy of endoscopic incision of bladder neck (BNI).

I personally think it will help to improve your symptom.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
