We do not have enough information for providing you a correct diagnosis. Full urine test results + cystoscopy report + radiology formal reading are essential in the differential diagnosis. You may need to be evaluated by a nephrologist as well. Please patiently follow with your family doctor and urologist in the mean time.

The last sentence does not explian the true findings. Pl ask your Urologist to explain findingsclearly and then also the course of management. In the meantime drink water and take tylenol as needed for pain
