Jefferson University Hospitals


Jefferson urologists may conduct a uroflowmetry to detect the presence of problems with your lower urinary tract, such as benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) or cancer of the prostate or bladder. In the case of a suspected cancer like prostate, specialists in the Jefferson Multidisciplinary Genitourinary Oncology Center may use this procedure coupled with renowned expertise to determine the nature and extent of detected cancer, in order to develop a personalized treatment plan.
