Here are some...: Ureterocele is a congenital ballooning (dilation like a balloon) of the very ending part of about 1-2 cm (lying inside the bladder wall, but fortunately most of cases are incidentally found with no detrimental effect to your health.

Here are some ...: If your Q is referred to the finding of imaging study of urinary tract such as CT.IVP, cystogram long, I would consider the possibility of inflamed swelling by the presence of stone stuck there beside ureterocele - much more commonly seen in children; occasionally, tumor can cause such look but more in the elderly.

A f/u visit w/urologist in jan. Showed i had blood in urine again. Had cystoscopy done last week & was told i likely had a ureterocele. Implications?
Depends ?obstruction: Ureteroceles usually dianosed by bladder ultrasound. No intervention unless ureterocele is causing any significant obstruction evidenced by hyrdonephrosis (kidney swelling) on that side.

Both are medical doctors: They both have identical training, and specialties. The only difference is that osteopathic physicians take additional coursework in manual medicine to treat pain, and dysfunction, and a year-long anatomy course that helps to understand functional anatomy relationships better, as it applies to disease states, while in medical school. The basic osteopathic philosophy regards the body as an integrated whole with structures and functions working interdependently, versus a disease oriented health care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Both are very safe overall. ...Read more
