Ultrasound study of a large prostate utricle cyst

This 40-year-old male patienthad non-specific symptoms related to micturition, namely, difficulty in passing urine, mild pain during micturition or dysuria and splitting of the urine stream.
Transabdominal ultrasound images shown below reveal a cyst in the prostate:

 Transrectal ultrasound images of this case also shown below:

Clearly there is a large cyst in the upper prostate in the midline. The colour Doppler ultrasound images show normal vascularity of prostate. The large size of this prostate utricle cyst can easily explain some of the symptoms of this patient. This can be partly explained by actual compression of prostatic urethra by the utricle cyst of prostate.
