Bloody urine most times. Ct/ cystoscope, no tumor/stone, saw poss block from"renal pap necr".  Burning pain when lifting above genitals. Poss hernia?

Ureters : Connect the kidney to the bladder, and the urinary pelvis is the location where they connect. If you are experiencing bleeding from any site, a clot can obstruct the ureter and cause colic. You need a retrograde pyelogram to assess. Cannot fathom how a hernia would cause your symptom complex or blood in urine. You sound like a classic stone passer. ...Read more

Can D&C be done to check abnormal bleeding in 46YO instead of endometrial biopsy? I'm deathly afraid of pain I'll experience w/ biopsy & no anesthesia

D & C versus biopsy: The D & C will require more pain unless it is done under local anesthetic block in the office or ambulatory center with general anesthesia. (more expensive) Endometrial biopsies can be done with aspiration silastic (flexible plastic) devices that rarely produce pain/ discomfort. Talk to your MD about this issue and then conjointly select one that works for both of you. ...Read more

Nope: Congrats on the benign results! we have been performing core biopsies for over 30 years and have not found any association between benign biopsies and cancer development. Moreover, surgical biopsies are more "traumatic"--we've been doing those for 100+ years without any increased cancer risk. ...Read more

Unlikely: Unlikely, especially if you have not had any issues with bleeding problems prior to this. The anorectal area is very vascular and some slight to moderate bleeding after surgery (hemorrhoidectomy, biopsy, fistula surgery) is not uncommon). Initial basic bleeding tests would be an pt/ptt and CBC with platelet count. Hope this helps. ...Read more
