My UTS resuls" B/L dilation of vessels entering Renal Pelvis, mostly in the right kidney" no masses, and a residual volume of 68 mL, should I worry?

40 years,ultrasound detect minimal fluid douglas and large number of epithelial in urine, i have pain in the pelvic and back for 2 months,What is?
TooLittle& Confusing: information: Ultrasound of what? "minimal fluid douglas" does not make sense. Epithelial cells in urine from urethra is normal; large number likely just reflects not an optimally collected "mid-stream clean-catch" sample which would have ?ed the epithelial cell concentration seen. Pelvic & back pain may not have anything to do with these observations, just part of common differential evaluation. ...Read more

Possible Infection?: It could be related to the hemorrhage, depending on its location. Usually, blood is from trauma to the penis or an infection in the prostate. If it is a single episode, it is usually not significant. If there are other symptoms or repeated episodes, then, you need to be checked for infections. If you are having unprotected sex, you should be getting checked regularly for infections, anyway. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is the sperm found in precum from a previous ejaculation and will urinating in between clear it out of the urethra?
Yes: There are multiple questions to be asked about this effusion. If is happened as a result of trauma are the components of the knee intact? If it occurred without trauma is it from an infection? Does a sample of the fluid need to be taken for analysis? I'm afraid you, or whoever's knee we're talking about, should see a doctor. Sorry for the inconvenience at a time like this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sharp pain during bowel movement on 1st 2 days of menses. MRI shows some small volume fluid in pouch of douglas. Ultrasound found no abnormalities.
You need to continue: following your GYN doctor to figure out if indeed the pain you feel during bowel movement is attributable to the MRI results - especially since the ultrasound did not find anything to cause the pains. I hope you got a transvaginal ultrasound instead of abdominal ultrasound since the former is much more sensitive to pelvic findings. ...Read more
