No, cáncer should not make any difference to the "normal" smell. Drinking plenty of wáter will dilute the smell, but there are various other factors which affect smell- a fishy smell can be an indication of an infection. Some foods and drugs also affect the final "perfume" - one of the most noticeable is asparagus I believe ( don·t eat it so can·t speak from experience!)It is worth mentioning to your urolgist though, particularly if there may be an infection.

I think you should drink a lot. If your urine is diluted it won't smell that bad. I did not understand the importance of drinking a lot until the bladder cancer. A lot of harmful chemicals accumulate in the urine and they affect the bladder lining. Now I drink a lot and my pee is very clear. But I also take chemotherapy drugs for another cancer plus my regular drugs for blood pressure, and heart and other things. I was told by my doc to drink a lot of water.

Please forgive the topic! I have an embarrassing question to ask. Does one's pee smell bad as a result of a cancerous growth?

Please don't take offense! When I have 'the dribbles' , as in, I have no way to control the stream, it's most noticeable.

Any feedback would be appreciated for this newbie. With my cystoscopy tomorrow I am hoping to get some answers, although, in a recent post I was asking about exactly WHAT questions I should be asking!

Thank you!
