Not a problem.

Please let me know what question you have about the possible work in the urine and I'm happy to address it.

what should i do
Urologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

If you aren't having any burning or blood in the urine then generally we don't recommend doing anything yet.

It may have been one single worm and you never may have any more.

If you have discomfort or see other worms then it's important to take a course of antibiotics which your doctor can prescribe.

If that doesn't help then a camera is inserted to look up into the bladder and retrieve any worms manually.

Otherwise I hope I provided you with a 5-star service.

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.
