My dad shows blood in his urine. Aside from some other medical issues (mass in thyroid and enlarged groin lymphnode) we now have to address this issue too. The docs are saying a FISH test and cystoscopy. He gave a urine sample 3 wks ago and they never told us that there wasn't sufficient cells and now he has to do it again. I hate careless, incompetent doctors and am frustrated with them! As for the cystoscopy, how painful is it? How long is the precedure? Who should do it, like any kind of specialist or is a urologist enough? I ask because we had a horrible experience with the radiologist who did his fine needle biopsy of the thyroid. Please give advice and help!
