Hi
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.

Over the last few days I ve felt like I need to pee very frequently. It s not a pressure in my bladder and there s no noticeable pain when passing urine. It just feels like there s pee in my urethra that s right at the edge of bursting. This occurs almost immediately after going to the bathroom and continues throughout the day. Sometimes the symptoms disappear for a while but they always come back. I am a 19 year old male with no history of bladder problems (normally a very strong bladder).

I have nt had a prenatal exam yet but is there a way to control this or is there a reason it happens?

Could being constipated maybe cause him also not be able to urinate even though he feels the urge? How long before we wait to be really concerned?
