Can serious urinating issues become cancer, or kidney problems? I have wet the bed for a long time, since I was young. I am almost 13. I have also had trouble urinating and bowel movement problems during the day. Sometimes I used to urinate during the day
Not cancer: May have bladder & bowel dysfunction & might be worth consulting a pediatric urologist.
