Urine culture showed strep viridans  10,000-25,000 bacterial colonies. Mild burning at the end of urination in a female.  Should antibiotics be used?

Maybe, maybe not: Strep viridans is not a common cause of UTI but is often present in the genital area and easily contaminates voided urine. And real UTI usually has higher numbers. But if careful clean-catch urine specimens show signs of infection (increased WBC without epithelial cells) and had the same culture result, with no other bacteria, a trial of treatment might be warranted. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

E.Coli in urine culture means it is in your bladder? What UTI or diseases can a person get if e.Coli has been diagnosed in urine culture?

Cystitis: A positive urine culture for e coli usually means you have an infection of the lining of the bladder, a cystitis. That is what a "uti" is: a urinary tract infection. This can be serious, as it can spread up the ureters to the kidneys (pyelonephritis) and eventually if not treated cause kidney failure. It can also spread to the blood which can be fatal. See a doctor asap and get treated. ...Read more

Is strep mitis always consider contaminant from blood culture?

However, if someone with terrible teeth has a prosthetic device, clinical symptoms, and labs consistent with an infection, then it may actually be a real infection. ...Read more

Will a cystoscopy with bladder stretching and tissue biopsy include testing for candida fungi and Lyme spirochetes in bladder?  I have both conditions

Discuss with doctor: The individual performing endoscopy is the person to discuss the nature of the testing they plan to perform. I am not aware of anybody who examines for the presence of spirochaetes in the bladder, although if you insist upon this there are specialty labs which may perform this.
