Welcome. First none of us are doctors so any ideas are simply a guess. I trust you have been checked out for a urinary tract infection. Many of you symptoms mimic that. As Sara Anne posted you do want to find out what is causing your symptoms so the early cancellation is a good idea.
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.
Thanks for your reply Sara Anne. I tried to get earlier appointment but they don't have any available at this point of time since most of the urologists here in my city are busy diagnosing people who made appointment in March/April. I also asked them for the first available cancellation. Feeling completely helpless right now. I'm feeling so bad and guilty that I'm hiding something very important to my fiance. Is there anything that I can ask my family doctor at this point?
I move your post here where more people are likely to see it. "Chit chat" is for off-topic, chatty stuff!
Your symptoms are not typical for bladder cancer, but only a thorough exam by a urologist could determine
what is is. You could try for an earlier appointment either with this specialist or with another of your choosing
by asking for the first available cancellation,
Good luck to you

I'm 29 year old male. I have been experiencing frequent urination from last 2 months. And from 3 weeks I'm suffering with lowerback pain, difficulty starting to urinate, peeing small amounts of urine, irritation around penis area, bladder getting filled immediately after urinating, dizziness and stiffness in legs. I'm a smoker and smoke atleast 2 packs a month.
I have been seeing my family doctor from last 2 months and she is very unsure of the symptoms I got by performing several ultrasound, blood and urine tests. She referred to the specialist and they gave me appointment in October with is pretty late.
I'm extremely worried right now because of the point that I'm getting married in December and here I'm with all these symptoms. I'm feeling helpless in the current situation.
Could you guys tell me, if anyone facing the same symptoms and tell me if it is bladder cancer. It would be very helpful.
