If you have white blood cells in your urine, it is an indicator of possible infection but based on the overall test results, the doctors were probably not concerned.
Good luck to you.
I went, and saw my third urologist on 09/09/2010. The first two pretty much blew off my symptoms with "you're young, there's nothing wrong with you." The off-and-on groin pain is nothing.
The third urologist is a bit more detailed oriented. As for the thickening, he believes that it is inflammation, and not malignant. He assured me that whatever is going on down there should not be a tumor or malignancy. I proceeded to ask him why, and his response was that:
a) My urinary patterns are normal.
b) No RBC hematuria (gross or microscopic) is present in my urine.
c) My age is too young.
d) There is usually lymphatic involvement, and I do not exhibit any.
I asked him what else it could be, and he responded that is why a cystoscope is needed.
Thank you for your response. I appreciate your input, but a little worried about this statement!

So bladder/urinary types of cancer hit my age group the most?!?
