BOO or bladder outlet obstruction can be caused due to anatomical obstruction like a sphincter problem or a growth etc that may be causing the obstruction.An ultrasound may not pick up BOO.You might need further test,even MRI.The treatment will depend on what the cause is.So first tests need to be done to find what is causing the obstruction.
