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 m an 80 yr. old male and have been on warfarin for years with no problems. P/T 2 days ago was 2.5. First and second urination today was bloody. Never had this problem before except as result of prostate cryosurgery in 2008, which was only temporary. Subsequent PSA tests were 0.05, 0.50 and 0.73. I m on no other presciption medications and very active (tennis). I take daily supplements of vitamin C, glucosamine w/msm, B-50 complex, and selenium. If it might be a factor, I did 3 hours of yard work yesterday, primarily involving pruning of rose bushes.

I have had a dull uncomfortable buring in my pelvis, thighs, perineium, and groin areas. it has been there for 3 weeks. It comes and goes and seems to be a little worse when sitting. No pain during urination and no discharge of any kind. I have been to my dr and urologist with a follow-up this week. They don t have an answer yet. prostate checks out fine. Also see a very dim purplish spot on head of penis that doesn t hurt. Seems to come and go. Wondering if it is because of checking myself numerous times during the day.
