Please do not wait....don't walk...run to your nearest UROLOGIST!
Hematuria (blood in the urine is nothing to fool around with!
Just do it and you will have relief that you will know what it is.
Keep us posted PLEASE!

I do not want to imply that this hematuria could be innoccuos (I can't seem to spell it LOL at myself). I actually know 2 people that have had microscopic hematuria off and on for years and no known causes! That being said, Mike is 100% correct. You need to have a cystoscope and probably a CT scan reading the kidneys, bladder and prostate. Those both usually go hand in hand to try and determine the cause. Also, as Mike said, I add "run to your urologist". This disease is treatable is handled early.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

Definitely see a urologist - everything Mike said is right on the money. Don't wait - do it now!! Bladder cancer responds very well to treatment if caught early.

Could be benign tumors also. Go to a urologist. Can't imagine why your doctor hasn't already sent you to one.

Call your doctor, insist on a referral to a urologist.
He/she should do a cystoscopic exam (look in there) to see if anything can be seen.

Until he/she determines you have cancer, you don't. Let's not get ahead of ourselves right yet.

HOWEVER, the symptoms are worthy of concern and you should be seen by a urologist post haste! That means like this week!

Let us know what the urologist says.
