Do you smoke?: Cancer does not occur in this manner, or present this way. The only risk of cancer at your age in the bladder would be is you smoke. But, bladder cancer does not cause weak urine flow.

Dr.is right: At your age of 35,cancer of the prostate is not something to consider.Bladder cancer doe not present with a slow stream. Follow your urologist's advice for further diagnostic and treatment recommendations.Best wishes.
