Small to medium blood in urine for 6mo, told it's no concern. Cystoscopy normal. Urologist wants to see me in 6mo. What else can it be? Worried

Sometimes excercise. can cause small amounts of blood in the urine. your urologist is correct that it is probably not anything to worry about. she/he is also correct to follow up with you to see if it is still there in 6 mos in which case additional testing (for example imaging of the kidneys) might be indicated.

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. Is it simple single system ureterocele or ectopic with duplex kidney? Simple cystoscopic incision, to allow uretrocele to drain. Why not done at cysto? Would be happy to review us for 2nd opinion if sent by email. Read more...
Depends. Treatment will really depend on whether the ureterocele is confined to the bladder,stenotic or not,ectopic or not. 400 characters is really not enough to discuss all this but I am sure your urologist will discuss your individual case. Waiting till January may be stressful for you,it would be for me. If I were you,I would call the urologist's office and make the appointment for sooner.Best of luck. Read more...
