Sorry but I need to ask--are you male or female?

Any discomfort when you urinate?

Urologist: Dr. Chip, General Practice replied 10 months ago

OK

And these are jet black and look like solid tissue and not clots?

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
tissue is black looks very flimsy (like tissue paper) range in size from small like a pea to larger like a small postage stamp
Urologist: Dr. Chip, General Practice replied 10 months ago

OK

This has to be from your bladder wall and it may be a sign of interstitial cystitis--an inflammatory problem--or a chronic bladder infection

Either way, you need to have your doctor evaluate this with first a urinalysis and then a bladder ultrasound

Please let me know if you need any more information
