Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello, if anyone here having the same situation as me? Pls share I am very afraid it is Bladder Cancer. I was told there was like traces of blood cells found in my urine as though I do not have any symptoms of UTI or any pain. But I do have lower back pain but it also could be due to my pre-menopausal. I am only 54 and I am starting to be afraid of what's happening. I am eating quite well, no lose of appetite and gained weight. But as I read thru, bladder cancer weight loss appears in the later state. The reason why I don't wanna further my check up is because I fear I might have a negative answer. Well I do have other skin issue like eczema red rash patches and joint pain/bone pain. I suspect my cancer has spread and I am very worried as I have health anxiety. Could all this be bladder cancer.. I am a vegan.

     Hi Veronica: did the doctor discuss the red blood cells with you?  you should really have that discussoin with the doctor.  Red blood cells can be indicative of different things, usually not cancer, though that is always a possibility. For example, i had alot of red blood cells in my urine because i have a kidney stone. Try not to think of the worst thing it could be because it probably is not. Take care

    Over 45 years ago, I went through the same concerns when microscopic bloood was detected in my urine.  My doctor, after doing some research (no internet back then!), found that my running/jogging could be the cause and advised me not to be too worried.  Needless to say, he was right.

    Ill try again to reply to with this flipping Go Compare add taking over everytime i try to reply to you!

    Ive quite a few times been told my urine shows blood in it in the past, def not cancer.

    What did you mean by i suspect my cancer has spread? No loss pf appetite and gaining weight are not sounding like cancer.  You already have cancer else where then, i hope not! If you have then no wonder your worried.

    Just being pre- menopausal  can on its own cause feelings of anxiety.

    Do let us know how it all goes after seeing your gp

      Hello Susan,  may I know if it is Rbc , or they just detected blood itself? Because I've read a few of red blood cells in urine, and everything came out to be either tumor/cancer or an infection. I know I should not be self diagnosing myself either. But I really want to know  if  the result of rbc: 10 is something I should worry about, as my doctor seems to want me to go for further check up to the Urologist.
