Can atrophy of lining or urinary issue cause postmenopausal bleeding?

i have had postmenopausal bleeding since Oct ( after not have my period for over 12 years) and had an uterine biopsy and pap smear. They were negative and my dr. stated that it is probably atrophy of the lining and she would not do any further testing. i asked if it could be polyps or fibroid s and she said that at my age I should leave it alone. I still have the symptoms and sometimes the bleeding is heavier than other times. How do I know if the bleeding can be attributed to a urinary issue or something else.

Hi,

Considering your age, If bleeding is heavy it is better to get an endometrial sampling for histopathology.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Dr. B. Radhakrishnan. Nair, OBGYN

My step mother said she was up most of the night freezing and shaking. The next day she went to her dr who said her white blood cell count jumps from 800 to 2600 so her doctor gave her antibiotics - suspecting a urinary track infection. After 2 days there was no improvement so they did a cat scan. She does not have the results yet. Any ideas? She was diagnosed with muscle atrophy specific to French Canadians - she says on her left side - a few years ago. It runs in her family. She is experiencing quite a bit of shaking with her left hand recently.

Hi, I am a 52 year old male who was diagnosed with cebellar ataxia within the last 3 years. I have had similar problems dating back to 2007 . At that time saw a neurologist and after 3 years of tests and pokes the only conclusion was it might be the stat of MS or Cancer. Well, Cancer did come a calling two years later in the form of colon cancer. I did not go back to a neurologist until 3 years ago complaining of balance and speech issues along with eyes twitching. She did multiple test including MRI of the brain that showed my cerebellum only 1/3 the size it should be. My two questions are: my neurologist feels my cerebellum caused my cancer and can cause cancer again. Is this true? And how? My oncologist agrees with my neurologist. Also what is the life expectancy of someone my age with this disease? We do not know why my cerebellum is shrinking because I do not drink or have never had a stroke and no family history of this.
