This same virus effects breast Ca and men married to women with Br Ca get more prostate Ca. ...Read more

Possibly: Radiation therapy can cause inflammatory changes in the bladder which can result in microscopic blood in the urine. However a urine cytology should be performed to rule out possibly bladder abnormalities.

Depends: Obtaining a urine cytology is standard practice at time of cystoscopy. It can be helpful to determine if there is high grade cancer in the drainage system of kidneys.
