Blood in urine

2 years 3 months ago #56006 by Alan
You have had the 3 most used diagnostic tests for bladder cancer in CT scan, urine cytology and cystoscopy. Chances are pretty good it is all stones or those cysts you mention. For peace of mind if you have any doubt get a second opinion.

None of us are doctors so my hunch is what it is worth, not much. The cysts may bleed and are worth watching. Obviously stones can cause bleeding also among many other reasons. Long distance runners often have this problem. I even know 2 people that have passed blood in their urine of an on for several years with no known cause.

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.

Microscopic blood in urine was found at physical 1 year ago. Retested---still there. All other blood and urine tests fine. Had pathology test urine---no cancer cells. Visited with urologist and had CT scan with and without contrast. All was good but found 2 small kidney stones and 2 simple cysts on kidneys. About 6 months ago, I had the cystoscopy and all was good. I had physical about 1 month ago and all lab work was good except still have microscopic hematuria. Urologist said to retest in 1 1/2 to 2 years to check kidney stones. Two days ago I had visible blood in urine. Light pink yesterday. Today gone but probably microscopic. Not sure what I should do. I have no pain. I do feel slight discomfort or ache in lower back when I walk a lot, but I may just notice that hoping it is kidney stones on the move.
