Question: Calcified Mass Bottom of Bladder
|b8tzm - Tue Apr 24, 2007 5:38 pm||
My pee had light colored blood in it for a week-10 days
I had lower back pain and a little burning nothing major
When it turned dark brown I went to my Dr (Family Medicine)
He looked at my pee under a microscope and said it was 4.5 out of 5. He ordered an IVP for me
The IVP disclosed a calcified mass on the floor of my bladder.
I was told to see a Urology Dr
I have an appt in a week
What do I potentially have
Is it a tumor that needs to be biopsied?
Are these tumors usually benign the majority of the time
I am stressed out big time. We are scheduled to go to Europ in 2 weeks for 2 weeks,
Should I wait until I get back to take care of this?
Please help me I am recovering from lung surgery was in hospital 10 days beginning of year and still have fractured ribs etc
Thanks for any and all assistance

I think the most likely thing is that you had a kidney stone that has now passed into the bladder. This would explain your pain and the blood as well.
Your urologist may want to do a cystoscopy (use a small camera to inspect the inside of the bladder) to get a better idea of what is going on if there is still some question.
