After weeks of not being able to go for a Pee properly I finaly got my checkup yesterday ...My symptoms were (are) a sudden need to go to the toilet which I cannot delay or I will lose a drop ! when I get to the toilet it would not be worth it and only pee about 100ml of urine may uretha on the end has shrunk dramaticly and I have slight pain by peeing .The Dr checked out my prostat and said it is enlarged but not un normal for my age 63 he did also a Utra Schall on my Bladder and found a Cyst or something it was pretty largeon the screen

So now I have a termin with him for urethral dilatation which he explaied to me how it is done and he will also be taking a look and a sample from this Cyst .Now My Question is this do any of you other guys who have this problem also have a problem with Sweating ? I all of a sudden break out in a sweat and it is terrible its mostly from my head and the top area of my body I check my Temp and its OK But the sweating is driving me crazy ! Yesterday I was walking down the street at Minus 2 C and sweating I must have looked very weird to whoever saw me

Thanks for reading

    I am a bit bothered about having the OP because the reason I was there yesterday was to have it Dilated and the tube is so narrow the doctor could not go down it to do this work so it looks like they will have to open me up to remove the tumor

      Hi Stuart. I posted a link to another website so they deleted it. There is a charity called fight bladder cancer. If you Google it you will find their site. There is lots of helpful info on there and a fantastic forum with 2000 bladder cancer patients.

      Looks like its growing into the bladder as opposed to through it. What did your urologist think it was? Have you joined FBC forum?

      but I still have no idea what I have all I know is it is a tumor and I find out more on Wednesday and as for the Pain when going for a Pee it seems to be getting worse and also after having a pee it is very uncomfortable to sit .Yes I have joined that site Craig WOW lots to follow though I think I will worry myself even more in there

      Hi Stuart, I've had a turbt. Once they remove the tumour they will send it off to the lab. Two weeks later you get your results I.e. if it's cancer you will get your stage and grade. Your treatment plan for s then decided. Maybe as they couldn't d the scope they don't know what it is yet. Vladdrt cancer is only diagnosed from cystoscopy. When is your op mate?

      Oh Craig I am back home the removed the tumour and the next day I had to have another OP to have some pipe fitted from my Kidney back down to the bladder as the tumour had damaged it ! They sent me home this morning I was not really well enough but I am now home ! I have a tampon in my pants but I cannot control the urge for the toilet it comes all of a sudden and Bang the trousers are wet before I can make the toilet  .Will this get better ? The spasm I had also with the cartheta was terrible about every 10 minutes all through the night but they have stopped Now when I have a spasm its to late and my pants are soaked .They have sent the tumour off for a biopsy and we will see from there
