Hello, everybody, how are you? I just went on to the Emory Healthcare web site and was able to see some of the results from my urinalysis, right before I had my prostate biopsy. Well, the urinalysis results shows a trace of Leukocyte Esterase [White Blood Cell] in my urine. My question is does that mean it's more likely that I have some sort of infection than PC? I haven't received my biopsy results yet, but I was kind of curious.
You know what? I just remembered that I took ciprofloxacin like maybe an hr. or so before my biopsy. Do you think the cipro is what the urine test noticed? Based on what I was looking up on the internet, I didn't see any similarities with white blood cell count and prostate cancer. However, it's 3:38am, Atlanta, GA. time. So, I can't call Emory to ask them any questions. Plus, I know that you all are more informed about
this than I am. ANY
information would be greatly appreciated.
Yes, I still need to wait for the biopsy, maybe I could have PC and some sort of infection. I would just like to know your interpretation of this issue. Thank you!
