Very low...and so either there's a retained testicle, prostatic adenocarcinoma, urinary calculi (stones), an uncomplicated urinary tract infection (not involving his prostate gland/rare), or trauma to his urinary tract. I would ultrasound such a patient looking for a retained testicle, to evaluate prostatic health, and calculi. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
