Uroflo came back at 10 but close to empty. Should I be worried about bladder/prostate cancer? Had kidney stone removed 15 yrs ago. Dr thinks stricture

In brief: Uroflow

The uroflow does not provide any information regarding cancer of any kind.
It would be very unusual for a 35 year old to have either of those malignancies. The flow rate is dependent upon the volume of urine in your bladder prior to voiding and 10 cc/sec may very well be normal.

In brief: No

Bl. or prost. ca.
almost never at age 35.Uroflow rate of 10cc/sec may be +-low if the volume voided is low it would be nl. Not basis for diagn. stricture. If the voided volume is low, urologist may repeat the flow study&residual urine by bladderscan.If the flow is much slower then stricture would be suspected(usually hist.of gc or pelvic fract)Strict.diag by cysto or less invasively urethrogram.
