I had MDANDERSON examine my bladder for return of cancer.

Customer Question

I had MDANDERSON examine my bladder for return of cancer. They said cancer has not returned and there was only scar tissue, which caused bleeding and clots from time to time. They also advised to drink lots of water to stop the same. Is there a concern about a time period of the flow, such as week or longer. It usually stopped in a day or two.

This is Dr. David
are you worried about your menstral flow?
a longer menstrual period flow of a week is not a sign of bladder cancer.
but you should get your doctor to check your blood iron and ferritin levels to check for low iron which can be caused by bleeding and loss of blood.
have you had your iron and ferritin levels checked?
