Hi all hope all doing very well 

idk if I’m right place or no but I want some helps I’m 29 years old male start having 2 UTIs last year ever since uti I start have hung frequent urination that come and goes maybe one a week or maybe once a month doesn’t hurt or anything no blood too just gotta go each 30 min or hr I usually train my bladder to stay longer and it does work also I have done 20+ urine test all negative also 1 urine cytology negative too ct scan negative too x ray and ultrasound all clear negative so went to urologist this year done uroflow test for me and my uroflow was weak but I never notice my urine flow is weak anyways Urology ask for cystoscopy he thought I might have urethral stricture .

i did cystoscopy urethal is fine but once they in bladder they/me saw 2 flat dark red spot nothing around it nothing on top it ask the urologist who did the scope for me he said idk what that’s ! I said cancer or something he said don’t think so we gonna take pic and send it to ur main urologist he will decide for boipsy or no but I think he won’t do it 

On report says 

two small < 1cm dark red flat round lesions in left bladder (lateral), smooth otherwise and nil mucosal lesions

guys im really anxious at the moment I really wanna know the truth of this my wife she’s pregnant of our first child I just got married last year too

  • Hi  and welcome to the group, although sorry to hear of your concerns. We are not medics here and so unable to translate your report accurately. The best way of diagnosing cancer would be by a biopsy which your urologist may go for. In some cases it is watch and wait where they would leave it or a while and then take another look to see if things have changed. If it does turn out to be cancer, then be aware that it can be treated successfully. It is understandable you are worried but these things progress very slowly. It may be worth while contacting your urology secretary to try and bring your appointment forward for peace of mind. Best wishes.

    Best wishes to All,   rily.

  • Hi Julian29, why not have a chat with the Macmillan helpline, the number is at the bottom of the page if you scroll down.

    Lateral just means at the side, so that's just describing where the spots are. A lesion is just anything that possibly shouldn't be there, be it a spot, lump, tag, or hole-type thing like an ulcer. Nil means no. Hope that's decoded some of it for you.

    As rily says, try not to worry as bladder cancer is mostly extremely treatable, and the great thing is it's been caught, if it is actually anything cancerous, while small.

    best to you both and congrats on the baby

  • Hi Julian29,It is possible to have lesions that are non cancerous.Sometimes infections can cause a bit of inflammation that can show up as red areasUrologists can usually  recognise if a area looks cancerous so you will get a biopsy if they are at all concerned.Best wishes Jane
