Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have benign Enlargement of prostate with significant post void residue of 131 cc and volume of the Prostate being 51 cc.This is suggestive of Benign Enlargement of Prostate and your Bladder is not emptied completely during micturition.and 131 cc of urine remains in the Bladder due to obstruction to the Urine flow because of Enlarged Prostate.
Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical examination .He may advise you take Tab Tosulosin and Dutasteride to
relieve symptoms.
