    Hi Ron,

    It could be that a stone is stuck somewhere in your kidneys or anywhere else in the urinary tract. Did your urologist prescribe any CT Urogram or cystoscopy?

    Also, do you have any other symptoms like red urine?

    I remember I used to feel something weighing down on my left groin and testicles a month or two before passing my 3mm stone. The KUB ultrasound had not picked it up. I was also fearing that it could be bladder cancer.

    Hope you recover soon

    Thanks

    Fairly sure your symptoms are not cancer. I had Bladder Cancer with absolutly no symptoms. I once left a urine specimen for an unrelated problem and they found cancer cells in the water. For 2 1/2 years they searched for it with many tests and scans. When they finally found it, it was still early stage. Now nearly 4 years later I am absolutely clear. Sounds like you may have a UTI which could be anywhere between kidneys and penis.

    Go to a urologist and get sorted out.

      Hi David,

      Right off the bat, really sorry for asking you about your ordeal.

      I basically want to know what your situation was. Because even now, after nearly a year and although a nephrologist and three urologists had told me otherwise and after passing the stone, I still have this fear that my episodes of hematuria may have been for bladder cancer.

      If you don't mind me asking, how old were you when this happened? Also did the docs find an abnormal increase of epithelial cells?

      I have this issue for nearly six years now that usually after I wake up in the morning the early morning pee is quite yellow...Nearly honey yellow at times. Did you have these symptoms?

      Thanks in advance

      I was 74 when this first happened and i am now 75 Other than this in very good health. I am not sure about what the doc's have found They went in and opened up my water ways two different times and this did not help. Yes my pee is quite coloured also. With the first tests they performed they found cancer in my Prostate. I went to London and had the Braci Therapy treatment (this where they put radiation seeds in the prostate to kill the cancer, this was almost a year ago) They gave me a CT scan and said there was no more cancer any place in my body which was good news at the time but I am still wandering if what I have now is cancer. I have another appoitment with my regular Doc and another with the specialist in a month but it is so painful I am not sure if I can wait that long. The frequency of pain has increased a lot. I was up last night about every 3/4 of an hour with pain. I pee a small amount and the pain goes away for a short period of time. I have to really force the pee out and is very painful.

      Hi Ron.

      Sorry for the delay in responding.

      I was 68 when they found "unusual cells" in my urine. Every time I sent a specimen for Cytology testing they found these cells.

      The colour of your water I thnk has no bearing on what goes on inside.

      Colour can be from diet, for example if you eat beetroot your water will be dark reddish. I have to self-cathterise 3 times a day and therefore take a profilactic antibiotic once a day which colours my urine.

      I'm now 73 and feel very well.

      Your GP should send a specimen of your water for Cytology testing, which will show if cancer cells are present, which I am fairly sure, from the symptoms you describe, is not cancer.

      Best of luck.
