Urinary Tract Cancers

Urinary Tract Infection (Urgent)

03/12/2009

Question:

I am a 26 year married woman. I am very thin (5`3" and weight 46 kg) and feel weak even while cooking. I am a working woman. After being married since 6 months, I am suffering with white discharge. My urine culture test result says sterile after 24 hrs of incubation. The WBC in another urine test says numerous and ESR is 51. What does that mean? Will infection also infect my husband?

Answer:

The white discharge may be vaginal. I would suggest that you follow up with your doctor to be examined and for the urine to be rechecked and the white discharge to be cultured. Bladder infections are often associated with symptoms such as burning with urination.
