Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
hydronephrosis can be caused by cancer cervix but this will be clearly identified by MRI.when you are saying that doctors said this is not related to cancer you should believe them. now the cause of bleeding to be found out. radiation to cervix itself cause radiation cystitis which may cause bleeding at urination.cystoscopy will give the diagnosis. cystoscopic cauterization may be a treatment option. so consult your oncologist and urologist.
