Question: This past Sunday I began bleeding profusely when I urinated. The next day I saw my primary physician who prescribed me an antibiotic and Flomax and had me give an urine sample and set me up for an ultra sound.

I did both and saw a urologist on Wednesday. He gave me a digital exam, took a urine sample and I have a cat scan set for Monday. The urine tests were negative for bacteria.

Questions: The antibiotic stopped the bleeding quickly so if I do not have an infection what caused the bleeding and what stopped it? Also, from the least serious to the most serious, what would do you think is the ailment I have? I am seeing another urologist this Wednesday and the first urologist has set me up for a cystocopy in two weeks.

Brief Answer:
Mostly due to Enlarged Prostate

Detailed Answer:

Hello
Thanks for query .
XXXXXXX hematuria in elderly patient is mostly due to rupture of one of the superficial vein on the surface of Enlarged Prostate which is always congested This ruptured vein usually gets sealed off immediately making it a single episode of hematuria..

However the other common cause like cancer of the bladder has to be ruled out by doing endoscopic examination of bladder (Cystoscopy).

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

Persistant itch of right nipple, that has been present for a couple of months? No other symptom, just itch? No redness, crust, discharge, swelling. Have been on HRT patches, 75mg, recently incr/ 100mg, (estrogen) only due to excessive hot sweats, that i had never experienced, for months, didn t consider menopause, due to on HRT, my age. Have been on est only, for, maybe, 30yrs, due to inexplicable, erratic, mood swings, that i, & Doctors thought, hormonal?? In 2007, i was diagnosed with, rapid Cycling Bipolar!! So many years of disruption, to my life, huge financial loss, in Hypermanic states, depression, was diagnosed, in 1998!! The ups , i believed, were me, not depressd. But, so many years, on HRT??? Have not had a mammogram, or ultra sound, for maybe 13yrs ,as i have breast implants, since 1982, have been told, by Doctors, less risk of breast cancer?? A mammogram, in 1994, ruptured implant!! Did, continue checks, annually, but ultrasound. Last, 2001, then moved from Syd to Gold Coast, no checks?/ I think maybe, with what Bipolar has done, breast cancer, stupid i know, but, don t want to know. Far from an intelligent attitude, & writing this, maybe, since looking up causes, none, with added symptoms, make sense, relate, maybe, a little concerning?? Sensible option, have an ultra sound?? But, maybe no need?? Simple answer, just an itchy nipple?? I don t have a GP at the moment. So, could it be something to be concerned about, or nothing?? Annie

Hi, I have been experiencing swelling on my left shoulder (in the neck region) and there s what appears to be a swollen gland in my left neck. The headache is mostly on the right side of my head and breathing is sometimes correlated with irregular heartbeats. I am on HBP medications, but the docs have done tests (ultra sound, EGC, xrays, biopsy) for thyroid, but all are negative. What could these symptoms be and what are the possible treatments?
