Hi and thank you for asking!

I read culture results and it has nothing to do with cancer. Otherwise culture test is not used to detect cancer.

I would like to know why you have done culture test, which are your symptoms?
do you have any chronic disease and treatment.

Wish you health.

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,
Thank you for providing more of your medical information.
To my opinion if you have done CT and every thing came back normal , there is nothing to be worried .
Otherwise Your symptoms may be related with:
- urinary infection or prostatitis too.
- renal crystals and sludge
This is why I would suggest to use ciprofloxacine twice per day for 7 days and antispasmodic drugs like butiscopolamine.
Hope it was helpful to you.
