White blood cells in urine / no culture growth
I posted in prostate cancer but have now posted here .
For about 1 or 2 years I have noticed a small dribble of urine after urination which leaves a small stain. I thought nothing of it apart from lifestyle where I do tend to rush around. I do frequently need to urinate at night but this has always been the case, I large volumes of fluid right up to bedtime.
Well the picture gets more blured. The PSA result shows 1.5 and the DRE was okay according to the doctor who is GP, not a urologist
I am called in to see the GP 1 week later to discuss the urinanylisis which shows
microscopy x 10.3 per mil - red blood cells <1 and white blood cells 1 - 10 but no culture growth. ( white cells are high in the urine but no infection isolated )
The GP has asked me to go to a a GU clinic for possible infection which may cause my symptoms. It felt to me that he was assuming I had a sexually TD and kind of leaned towards the idea that I may have picked up an infection from a 3rd party or even my partner ( which poses even more questions ).. I dont think he showed any sensitvity towards my feelings or really understands my behaviour, not does he know about my sexual activity. He has dismissed further investigations until I get the results from the clinic, not to mention other possibilities
I am wondering if I ****** incorrectly. I did not take the sample mid-stream but ****** straight into the test tube on my first **** of the morning.
Thanks for looking at this
