If your Urologist does not feel that it is connected to your blc you might need to check in with your family practice doctor for direction. When I first had blc I somehow thought everything that went on with my body was connected to the blc. That is not always the case. If you have already done that you might ask for a second opinion to pin down the cause. This sort of thing always worries us is it something or nothing. If it changes or becomes worse don't hesitate contacting your health care provider. Keep us updated.
