Thought I Saw Blood in Underwear
« on: January 15, 2014, 07:05:21 PM »
I had a hysterectomy 10 years ago. I have had no bleeding down below since then. However, I am always checking my tissue paper for blood after I urinate. I have always suffered from anxiety over reproductive cancers and am concerned I have something wrong down below. Tonight I looked at my underwear and it looked like a blood stain. Is it cancer?

if it is cancer, would I see lots of blood?
I can't get out of the bathroom - keep wiping....

For one, stop wiping cause it can cause irritation. Second, are you sure this is blood? Did you see blood when you wiped. Other things besides cancer cause blood in urine. And to answer your question, no. Blood can be so minimal you can't see it or tons of blood. Urinary tract infections can cause this.

thanks for responding - so blood is not necessarily cancer? even though I had a hysterectomy and there is not much left in the reproductive area except one ovary

Of course blood is not always cancer :) you still have one ovary. It could be a cyst, if you had sex recently, scar tissue.

I was wondering the same, if you have had rough sex recently that can cause it

This might have been a bit of fecal smear or even a popped pimple (had that once and when I looked for where the blood might be coming from, found that).
Do you have hydrogen peroxide? Blood will bubble up and the stain go away. Use a few drops of hydrogen peroxide to see.  If it's pooh.... it'll just stay there.
