Hello, I recently went to my doctor and told her that I have been experiencing a blockage when I urinate and sometimes it is hard to start. Also when I'm at work and if I bend over a lot my kidneys while start burning. They gave my a urinalysis at the doctors office and found blood in my urine. They sent it of to get tested and said everything came back normal. Should I make an appointment with a specialist and investigate this further? Thank's

Hi. Sorry for taking so long to reply. I'm not on this site as much as I used to be.

I would suggest getting an appointment with a urologist. Blood in the urine can mean a lot of things, most of them pretty simple (urinary tract infection, kidney stone, things like that), but it can also mean a variety of more serious issues as well. Better to let an expert take a look at you.

It turned out I had a small lesion on my right kidney. I was referred to a urologic oncologist and we monitored it for about 2-1/2 years with scans. In April, 2016, a scan determined the lesion had grown, so in June, 2016, I had a robotic assisted partial nephrectomy. about 1 cubic inch was removed. I had the surgery at 3PM and I was released the next day at 1:30PM.

The pathology on the lesion showed it was chromophobe renal cell carcinoma, a form of kidney cancer that grows very slowly, rarely spreads and rarely comes back.

Sorry for the late post.If it is UTI,you can prevent it through foods.

Foods you can eat to prevent UTI

1.Avoid foods and drinks rich in sugar. Reduce the intake of sugar, soft drinks, concentrated sweet fruit drinks, coffee and alcoholic beverages.
2.Other foods to avoid are processed foods, spicy foods, fats, dairy products, red meats and shellfish. These foods are acid-forming (not to be mistaken with acid tasting food like the citrus fruits). Acidity formed from these foods increase the bacterial infection.
3.Eat fermented foods yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, sourdough breads and apple cider vinegar.
4.Drink juices high in vitamin C especially grapefruit.
5.Eat foods high in vitamin A .
6.Foods high in zinc may also help by producing white blood cells and eliminating bacteria. Some of the best sources of zinc are oysters, ginger, beef liver, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, Brazil nuts, egg yolks, peanuts, oats, almonds.
7.Drink cranberry juice.
Drink a glass of fresh cranberry or blueberry juice first thing in the morning and wait at least half an hour before you have something to eat. This drink is helpful for prevention of UTI.
