3 months ago, my Husband had some pain real low near his groin, but not severe. He had frequent urination, burning while urinating. Went to a general practicioner who found blood in urine (not visible to the eye) did a CT Scan and said it was a kidney stone. A few days went by and the pain did not go away so they tested for bacteria and there was none. The doctor said "it still could be an infection"... So he put him on antiobiotics. a week later, still having frequent urination, burining while peeing. So doc put him on stronger antibiotics. They seemed to help and ease the symptoms but not completely eliminate it.. Then bam, symptoms back again!
Finally he has went to see a urologist. He tested for bacteria, and there was none. Also there was no blood in his urine when the urologist tested it. But there was blood in it 2 times previously.
Now the urologist is sending my Husband for 2 more CT Scans, a Cytoscopy, and to test his urine to see if it has cancer cells in it.
I am SO SCARED! I feel like the doctor really thinks its bladder cancer. I straight up asked him if he thought it was, and he said, "I have to rule it out"..... I have been reading a lot of information online, and I am really scared, I honestly feel like he has bladder cancer based on his symptoms and not having any sign of a bacterial infection...
IS THIS THE SYMPTOMS OF BLADDER CANCER? I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM FELLOW BLADDER CANCER SURVIVORS.
What were your symptoms before you were diagnosed?
