Thanks for the question and coming here. I would say that I am not concern about kidney or bladder cancer at present because your presentation is different. I would like to investigate few important possibilities such as kidney stones or stones in bladder especially uric acid stones, hypertensive kidney disease. I will suggest it is very important to have your blood pressure in normal range because long standing high blood pressure can damage the kidneys. I will highly recommend to have kidney and bladder scan at the earliest which will investigate kidney or bladder stones. You should drink plenty of water and avoid spicy or junk food and avoid alcohol.

Your are saying I have ckd ? Blood creatinine 0.9. Bun was 18 . Urine had no protein in it. Basp was little high. 0.8.
Doctor: Dr. Amir, Doctor replied 2 months ago

I am not saying you have chronic kidney disease. I am saying about more likely to be kidney stones or bladder but you have to be mindful about your blood pressure which can cause chronic kidney disease in the long run if not well controlled. Also people with hypertension do have mild changes in their kidneys. I will highly recommend to have kidney and bladder scans that good for you.

Would early signs of ckd show up in the blood creatinine level ?
Doctor: Dr. Amir, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Not always. Mild changes leading to stage 1 CKD can only be detected in kidney scans instead in blood tests such as urea or creatinine.
