Bladder

6 days 8 hours ago #56147 by Alan
I have had 15-18 cystos (lost track on the total). Nothing to get worked up over. I won't say they are fun but, not really painful. Uncomfortable for 20-30 seconds as my URO passes through the prostate. And, yes, I second Sara Anne's and your decision on the cysto. The gold standard (or standard of care) is CT scan, cytoscopy with urine cytology. It will answer 98-99% of any questions on why one might pass blood. A lot of times it is a stone, infection etc and not BC.

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.

Good decision! My father "only had one incident of blood in urine" and was found to have advanced kidney cancer. Whatever, better check it out.

I agree with you. Going ahead with the test next week. Only had one incident of blood in urine.

Although you didn't give much information, I do have a question for you. Why ever would you NOT have a cystoscopy? It is a no-big-deal exam and could put a number of your uncertainties to rest.

Just had ct scan. Negative. Only had one blood clot in urine. Should I go ahead with Cystoscopy?
