i also feel some sort of congestion/discomfort in my testicles, not continuous, wouldnt call it pain to be specific, does this comply with your diagnosis as well?
should i be changing anything in my routine due to this. i mean i exercise exhaustively and have lost 8kgs in the past 4 months and am taking protein supplements since the past month for muscle gain. Will continuing my exercising/protein intake routine cause any problems till i undergo my urology examination. i keep running in and out of light fever as well.
as prescribed , i have gone through the following test -
ultrasounds of the kidneys, testicles, prostate and the bladder
urine flow rate and urine culture
all of the areas seemed fine but the prostate showed some calcification which the ultrasound doctor said that could be some prior inflamation which has healed.
since all the tests were inconclusive the doctor has now suggested we go through cystoscopy to further determine the cause. what do you think is happening doctor? can this be related to bladder cancer?
also since last week i have not noticed any blood in my ejaculate and the blood in urnie has always been non visible and WBCs are still observed
strangely the doctor didnt even bring this up and has suggested for the cystoscopy. any reasons for suggesting this or what does this test detect?
also does prostatitis explain the WBCs in the urine?
i dont think they were able to find anything of concern cause the doctor himself said that there is only 1 in 20 chances they find something. and also stated that these tests are not urgent and better if we do this before christmas
is there anything to worry about doctor, cause i think im stressing myself up
what other tests might have to go through if the doctors are not able to find any causes of the WBC in my urine.
Also is it required to have RBC in your urine to actually see discoloration of urine. i have no discoloration and as mentioned its is only non visible.
but didnt you say that the calcification of the prostate gland in the ultrasounds should be the cause of the RBCs?
my urine culture says W.B.C @ 70/cmm and nil RBC, does that help you further your diagnosis. is this WBC count too high? what should be the normal number?
is this called hematuria, or do you need RBC in your urine to have hematuria?
ok so then this is not the case of blood in urine. thought blood cells either white or red are constituted as blood in urine and hence hematuria
as i previously mentioned i had a new set of symptoms on thrusday evening consisting of dribbling, frequent urination and mild groin discomfort. i re did my urine culture which said that my WBC count has gone up to 135 cmm and still no RBC with mixed bacterial growth. does this categorize as UTI without ambiguity. my symptoms have somewhat subsided since this weekend since i have been drinking plenty of water. still no visible blood in urine and no fever.
post my cystoscopy the results of which were normal, other than WBC in urine i have started having an itchy sensation(not pain jsut discomfort and itch) near where my prostate is. this itch usually comes and goes and when it itches i can feel that im having difficulty in getting a steady stream of urine and urination becomes more ferquent. this is the only symptom im showing currently. these symptoms come and go so far i have had these symptoms once a week for the past 2 weeks and then they disappear. the cysctoscopy did not show anything of significance in the tract. only thing of mention was calcification in my prostate during the ultrasound. and the urine culture always shows 70 to 125 cmm WBC on dipstick and mixed growth of questionalbe significance(i have had 2 urine test in the past 2 weeks)
is there any assured way of testing for prostatis. cause based on the normal cystoscopy and ultrasounds of renal tract bladder , prostate(which showed focii) and testicles, he has not derived the conclusion and has completely ignored the calicification on prostate. and if my symptoms dont disappear in the next 2 weeks i have a CT scan. is the doctor going in the right direction. is calcification of prostate a sign of prostatis. and also does the prostate gland expand and contract within a short period of time cause my urinary flow problems keep coming and going in span of a day.
i continue to have brownish semen and WBC in my urine
