Thanks for query .

Based on the fats that you have posted you seem to have UTI which was confirmed by urine culture the organisms being E-Coli .

I shall be happy if you can post me more details to help me in making precise comments
1) Are you passing blood in urine (Hematuria)?

At the outset let me state that what is the basis for your assumption that you have cancer ? Passing XXXXXXX blood in urine (Hematuria)is the presenting symptom of cancer of urinary system.

Continue taking antibiotic as per culture report .It is bound to get cured within 10 days .

I am hypothyroid but my thyroid is stable. My medication was increased slowly over a 2 month period and my symptoms are finally diminishing after years of struggling with problems. My hair is falling out, though like it did when my thyroid was not balanced. Is it possible that I m shedding due to something else like psychotropic medications etc.? I ve been taking them for years and never had a problem until my thyroid became abnormal. I am 45 and my menses is normal and regular. I am losing at least 3 times more hair than normal for me. I am graying and color my hair but have been doing it for years and this hair loss seemed to come all of a sudden and started before I had a color treatment. I m lost. Is it true that there is a 3 year shedding and loss period.
