Blood in urine,age 20 years,sex-female, last menstruation period before 15 days.
nt using office toilet since last year(stops urine for 8 yrs daily)?

Urinary retention: leads to infection, especially in females. I suggest you see a physician and have a urinalysis done. Likely you need to have a course of antibiotic therapy. Also you need to find a way to relieve your bladder every 2 hours. If you connot use the office bathroom maybe you should consider working somewhere else. Alternatively, you could find another way to empty your bladder at the office. ...Read more

Fearful re: bladder cancer.  Have had microscopic blood in urine for nearly 2 years. Told due to warfarin. Now bladder not completely emptying. Often.

Not necessarily...: Blood in urine could be caused by multiple reasons.Most commonly UTI and stones.When it is painless it's worrisome for possible cancer but not necessarily.If you have been evaluated and already told it was caused by Coumadin (warfarin) most likely that is the reason.A cystoscopy gives a reliable diagnosis. Your symptoms could be caused by UTI so i advised you to see your pcp or urologist to evaluate further. ...Read more

I have at least 1+ blood in my urine for years. I developed proteinuria. Last test trace today it was 1+ no leuks or wbcs  i also have mild priorbital edema with mild flank/back pain. -stones ideas?

A kidney biopsy: People with persistent hematuria require a kidney biopsy to reveal the underlying cause. Only with tissue can we offer you a definitive diagnosis. Your new proteinuria and periorbital edema is concerning for actual kidney damage and loss of enough proteinin your blood vessels causing edema. This is never normal but it is potentially treatable. Please schedule a visit with a nephrologist. ...Read more

My 9 yr old has slightly elevated leukocytes in urine and blood, with small micro blood in urine also. various symptoms for years, should I worry?

My 9 yr old has slightly elevated leukocytes in urine and blood, with small micro blood in urine also.  various symptoms for years, should I worry?

Urinary findings: A few red and white blood cells in a prepubertal girl's urine usually is indicative of poor hygiene and poor wiping technique leading to peri-urethral irritation and thus the findings in the urine. So no, I wouldn't worry about those findings. However, you mention various symptoms for years - these may be worth worrying about if they are affecting her lifestyle and thus would need investigation. ...Read more

Persistent  painless lower belly bloat/pressure, stool sticks to bowl, normal color, no blood., split stream urine for years.Symptoms not progressing. Colon cancer? No fam history.37 yrs old.

Get checked: The lower belly pain is non-specific adn could be from many other causes including gas, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome or several other conditions including celiac disease. Sometimes, people can have blood in their stool but can't see it. I suggest evaluation by a gastroenterologist and he/she will determine whether you need a colonoscopy or other evaluation. ...Read more

27 years old male, healthy, blood in semen for the last 3 days...No other symptoms, no blood in urine or pain...Is this most likely benign?

Yes: Hematospermia is nearly always a benign (although frightening) occurrence. It may be due to prostatitis or seminal vesiculitis. See your family physician or a urologist for an exam. Antibiotiics are often prescribed for this empirically. ...Read more

Urologist, what to expect. Was referred for complete workup"after blood in urine. Went once for a specific condition years ago. What will exam be?

Blood in urine: Your doctor will start by taking a medical history and asking what may have caused the appearance of blood in your urine. This will be followed by a test called urinalysis. In this test, a urine sample is analyzed. Urine tests may include urine cytology, which uses a microscope to look for abnormal cells in the urine. Blood tests may also be ordered. If blood contains high levels of wastes that kidneys are supposed to remove, it could be a sign of kidney disease. In addition to urine and blood tests, you may need additional imaging tests. These may include: • Computed tomography (CT) scan. A CT, which is a special X-ray scan, can help identify bladder or kidney stones, tumors, and other abnormalities of the bladder, kidneys, and ureters. • Kidney ultrasound. An ultrasound uses sound waves to create a picture of the kidney's structure. • Intravenous pyelogram (IVP). This is an X-ray of the urinary tract that requires dye. • Cystoscopy. This test involves the insertion of a small tube with a camera into the bladder through the urethra. Tissue samples (biopsy) may be obtained to check for the presence of abnormal or cancerous cells. • Kidney (renal) biopsy. A small tissue sample is removed from the kidney and examined under a microscope for signs of kidney disease ...Read more
