Health aniexty had d dimer yesterday was 178 two weeks ago was 73 can't stop worrying I have a clot doc said 178 still negative cut off 250 y the increase?
D-dimer not an issue: D-dimer is affected by many things, not just large blood clots. It's useful as a screening test, because if it's in normal range then a large clot is extremely unlikely. However if it's elevated, it really means nothing except that a clot is possible. A normal d-dimer going up or down means nothing. It is still normal. Please relax and be happy about your good health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Should I be worried abt cancer prostate/bladder if uroflow came back and Dr. thinks I have a stricture? DR did blood & urine test, never said cancer.
Stop worrying: You're 35 years old. Strictures are common in young guys, especially since you had a stone and perhaps instrumentation. Bladder cancer is rare and prostate cancer pretty much non-existent. And there's nothing to gain by worrying. Ask, "This isn't cancer, is it?" when you get your procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Urethral stricture: Although there is some evidence to suggest that Saw Palmetto works with benign prostatic hypertrophy, I know of nothing to suggest it helps with strictures. This is a mechanical obstruction that responded best to dilatation. I would follow the advice of my urologist. ...Read more

Not only is there then no value to the PPD (it will be positive due to similar factors that make the quantiferon positive), but you are at risk of having a very severe reaction to the PPD and losing tissue in the area in which the PPD is placed. Please do not do this. Unnecessary and dangerous. Best wishes. ...Read more
