blood in urine

It is just over one year since I finished IMRT prior to which I had TURP. )TURP  is transurethal resection of the prostate. Which I had for very enlarged prostate).  I have had no  problems until to-day when I passed urine there was blood first then clear. This frightened me since I have never had this happen before. Could it be long term effects of IMRT or TURP.

    Scar tissue

    Most probably it is a cause from scar tissue. This is typical in radiation therapies and reported frequently by RT patients.

    In any case you better get the opinion from your RO.
