Hi, I have been having Lower Abdominal Pain and pain when urinating for over 1 month. I have been treated with antibiotics for Bladder, Urinary tract and Kidney infections but to no effect. My blood test came back as normal as did my ultrasound scan.
I now have to have a Cystoscopy Procedure. Why would they be doing this if my bloods and ultrasound were normal ?
A Cystoscopy procedure gives an inside view of the prostate and bladder so your doctor can see if there is BPH enlargement or prostate cancer there.
Unfortunately the test they should be doing is not done by urologists: a prostate fluid examination under a microscope. Ask him why he doesn't do such a simple and informative test.
There is only one urology clinic in the world that does this:
3D Prostate testing
Without proper diagnosis through looking at prostate fluids and viral testing for pathogens, your doctor's treatments will be a shot in the dark.
Also oral antibiotics cannot penetrate into the prostate as you can read about on that site. It requires direct injection of medicines into the prostate.
I went there and know it works.
You can decide more after your limited testing that your doctor is doing with the Cystoscopy Procedure.
