This is Dr. David
if there is blood in the urine and there is no bleeding in the bladder, the blood cells could be coming from the urethra or it could be coming from the kidneys from nephritis.
it sounds like he has had two cystoscopy procedures to look up the penis into the bladder.
how was his prostate cancer treated?
he might need an MRI scan or ultrasound scan of his kidneys to check for kidney masses and kidney inflammation to see if there is bleeding there.
often times, patients can loose large amounts of blood from the GI system and bowel
his stools should be checked for blood as well to see if he is loosing blood through his stools.
