Brief Answer:
Bladder infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

How high are your Triglycerides (please give the result).

From your description, you have a urinary tract infection (bladder infection most likely). Frequent urinating and lower abdominal pain point to that. You may have no other symptoms, however back pain can be also present.
I suggest you to consult your doctor, have urine analysis and urine swab test done. Antibiotic treatment seems necessary.

If its about triglycerides, you should change your diet habits (no fatty foods, more vegetables) and recheck it in a month or so.

Hope this helps.
Regards.

I had two different urine test and everything was normal

Two separate urine test a couple weeks apart and everything normal. My tryclicerides war 358. I’m worried I could have bladder cancer!

I’m a man!

I actually just had an abdominal CT Scan about six months ago and it was negative. My PSA from 8 months ago was 1.3 my doctor also did a DRE last month and said prostate was normal.

Brief Answer:
Urine swab test has to be done.

Detailed Answer:
But you did not have urine swab test. This test can detect bacteria, even if urine analysis is negative. It is strongly advisable test at this point. If urine issues are ruled out, you should consult gynecologist and have transvaginal ultrasound done to see ovaries and uterine condition.

Brief Answer:
Please see the answer below.

Detailed Answer:
Sorry for the gynecologist issue.
Still urine swab test needs to be done. Bladder cancer gives blood in the urine at first with frequent urinating. Abdominal pain is not a symptom in most cases. And bladder cancer is possible only if you smoke. Otherwise it is hardly possible.

Please check your urine with swab test at first. If negative, than have abdominal ultrasound which is the right test to rule out bladder cancer. Finally, consult urologist for prostate checkup (it would be good to have PSA level done before this visit).
Your triglicerides are very high indeed. You need diet change and medicines lowering it (prescribed by your doctor).

Brief Answer:
Bladder cancer is almost impossible.

Detailed Answer:
Than you have nothing to be worried about, especially bladder cancer. Please have urine swab test.

Brief Answer:
You are welcome.
