In brief: Uti

Generally, unless it is a cath specimen, we consider > 100k colonies a positive result.
Your symptoms are just as predictive of success w/ treatment than the colony count.

In brief: Not too bad!

The diagnosis of UTI requires 100 000 ufc/ml.
The presence of UTI symptoms is important. If you don't have symptoms then contamination should be suspected and repeat urine culture with clean catch is recommended.
