Customer reply replied 11 months ago
67, male, not usually painful urination, once in a while it takes a while to come out, and comes out slowly. I have small bloody clots which look like small slugs, which come out once in a while. The have the consistency and look of raw liver. ( is this the bladder lining?). No history of kidney stone.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The urologist did a urine test, then ordered the CT scan and cystoscopy. Does this mean that he has ruled out UTI?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 11 months ago

A urine test rules out a UTI in majority of incidences. Your symptoms need to be ruled out of bladder tumor, I am afraid. The causes of blood clots in urine are;

1) Kidney and bladder stones

2) Urinary Tract Obstruction

3) Urinary Tract Trauma

4) Excessive exercise

5) Urinary tract Infection

6) Sickle Cell Disease

7) Kidney and bladder tumor

Urine culture and an ultrasound are the first investigative protocol. Intravenous pyelography, CT scan, cystoscopy, etc may be followed depending on the initial investigative results.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
