Intermittent terminal hematuria,but dipstick negative. Could microscopic urianalysis reveal bladder cancer? If urianalysis negative, what other cause?

Cysto: Terminal hematuria is likely from bladder or urethra. Has your doctor suggested cystoscopy? I would not be worried about bladder cancer in a 25 year old but giving you a cause would be guessing. Best wishes. ...Read more

Cancer (Definition)

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Can bladder cancer be seen on ultrasound? If u/s shows no tumor, should further testing be done on a child with gross terminal hematuria? Not a uti.

Can bladder cancer be seen on ultrasound? If u/s shows no tumor, should further testing be done on a child with gross terminal hematuria? Not a uti.

Here are some ...: Ultrasound study only gives a gross rough imaging assessment with low sensitivity for small lesions. So, it is an absolute saying no bladder cancer. Terminal gross hematuria suggests its origin from the urethra, especially prostate urethra. So, a cystourethroscopy under anesthesia is needed. But, how far an evaluation should go for? It should be individualized. So, ask and talk with Doc timely. ...Read more

If a cystoscope and CT scans are negative can I be sure i don't have bladder cancer? I have micro hematuria asymptomatic

If a cystoscope and CT scans are negative can I be sure i don't have bladder cancer? I have micro hematuria asymptomatic

Most likely: You can be sure there is nothing big and obvious. A cystoscope will find lesions, masses or polyps that are quite small. There is always a risk of flat lesions or "carcinoma in situ", and if you are high risk, then periodic urine cytology or molecular testing may be helpful for screening. ...Read more

Micro blood in urine- 250+ result..Nurse said it was max. Dad had bladder cancer. Does this indicate cancer?32y/o woman who has never smoked.

Micro hematuria: Microhematuria in a 32-year-old female who has never smoked is not very likely to be due to bladder cancer. Bladder cancer is not really genetic in nature. Despite that, you should have a hematuria workup which would include imaging of your kidneys as well as a cystoscopy and a variety of possible urine studies. ...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.

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 had bladder cancer 15 years ago. I had a trace of blood inmy urine. The doctor scoped me and found no tumor. He sent my blood to get a full report. What else could be the cause of blood in urine?

Lots of things: Congratulations on your cancer survival. With blood in the urine it's certainly possible that the tumor had returned but the scope is reassuring so that's clearly positive. Could be infection causing the blood, could potentially still be treatment related though typically that would have happened earlier. Good luck. ...Read more

Is ct mri scan enough to rule out bladder cancer. i was told i had glomeruly but asked for those both just in case. Microspic blood in urine. 26 y old?

Consider more: I'd be more worried if I had glomerulonephritis, to tell you the truth. About 1% of folks have lifelong hematuria from thin-glomerular basement membrane non-disease, but you have to get worked up from time to time. Ask whether it's worth getting cystoscoped.

Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
