Below are the various infections or diseases that the Uroflowmetry test can detect:
Prostate cancer, tumours, bladder stones etc., can cause a urinary blockage from the kidneys to the urethra. If left untreated, this blockage can cause infection, scarring, or even kidney failure.
- BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERTROPHY (BPH):
It is a health condition where your prostate gets enlarged, causing the urethra to narrow down; as a result, the normal flow of urine is hindered. It can even block the Urethra entirely if left untreated.
- FREQUENT URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS:
Due to the abnormal urine flow, you might get exposed to various urinary tract infections that cause scarring and damage to your urinary tract.
- CANCER OF BLADDER OR PROSTATE
Infections in the urinary tract and bladder could also suggest cancer.
