Blood in urine with irritative symptoms is a bad combination and raises the suspicion of cancer
in the bladder
.It may not be true always, but it needs to be checked and this condition ruled out.
The usual cause of blood in urine and weak stream is enlarged prostate
gland.If this is the case both can be controlled by medications.
in the bladder can also produce such symptoms.
So you can see many conditions can produce these overlapping symptoms.Only further tests can shed more light on one particular problem and can be treated accordingly.
You need to do an urine cytology
as well as ultrasound
scan of the kidneys and bladder.CT scan
would be the perfect test, but can be done if the ultrasound shows some problem.
Also a rectal exam is necessary to see for the prostate enlargement. PSA
test will see for prostate cancer.
Last test to be done is cystoscopy
- seeing inside the bladder with a camera.This will see for any abnormal growths in the bladder.
I hope this helps you take a decision regarding your problem.
