Thanks for your question. If I don't respond to you immediately, it is because I am either in the OR or traveling. I WILL get back to you ASAP.This urgency you have and the bleeding is concerning for either a infection of the urine or a tumor in the bladder. You need to get in to see a urologist in the next week to have a CT Scan and cystoscopy done to look in the bladder to rule out the tumors. You need a urine culture to see if there is an infection that needs to be treated as well. Hope this helps and let me know if you have question.
