Question: congealed bleeding from the penis
Answered by Dr. Rogers Nditanchou 2 hours later
Brief Answer: exclude prostate problem, complete clinical review Detailed Answer: Hi and thanks for the query, It is important to know if you experience any urinary incontinence, frequent urination, painful urination or difficulties to hold urine for sometime when you feel as urinating. If these symptoms are present, the commonest cause of bleeding in penis in an adult male older than 50 years of age is a prostate problem. It is important to exclude a simple prostate enlargement (prostate hypertrophy) or prostate cancer. Simple tests like a physical examination, measurement of the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels in blood and a prostate ultrasound shall be sufficient. Other causes of concealed penile bleeding could include leukaemias. However, fatigue, anemias, fatigue and chronic fever are all usually associated with this condition. Urinary tract infections are generally associated with bleeding and blood in urine, not concealed. A complete clinical review is needed from your primary care doctor. In case you got other specific concerns, please feel free asking follow up questions through this forum. Thanks and kind regards as I wish you the best of health. Kind regards Dr Rogers

Hi, I just had my period about a week ago, but I m still finding what looks like blood in my underwear. It s kind of a reddish-brown color, close to the color of cola, and when I wipe, it s on the toilet paper. It also stings when I pee. Could this be the start of a urinary tract infection? If it is, what should I do?

I had unprotected sex about a couple of weeks ago. After that time I have been realizing when I have to urinate rather than it just being a normal part of the day. Now it is around time for my period and I think I should just wait to see if my period comes but I have been having slight discomfort. My urine is a very yellow color and I have been having little yellow discharge after I urinate. Recently I wiped before urination to check if there was spotting but there was a clear mucus like discharge before urination then after urination there would be this yellow stuff. I assumed that I have a yeast infection or maybe a urinary infection. I'm not scheduled to see a doctor until May 5 so I was wondering if I should wait things out or take immediate action? Any ideas?

Hi Doctor, My 14 month old daughter is diagnosed with Urinary tract infection.The infection has reached to a critical stage by the time we came to know about it WBC 100, RBC =5-7 with bacteria E.Coli.Then she was admitted and was given IV for three days. After 3 days she was put on an oral anitbiotic Orfloxin Since the infection was under control i.e. WBC = 20-25 but she didnt respond well to that anti. and within a week the WBC again went to around 50. She was then given Amicacyn injections for seven days. With these injections WBC count has come to normal but showd an increasing trend i.e. from 3-5 to 5-7 in last day of injection. So she has been put on Amoxylin. We consulted on more doctor and he prescribed Taxim for her. So I just want to know which to follow and is this an indication towards VUR or just that infection is chronic and hence taking a long time to vanish? Please help
