I am 46 woman, my pantie always gets wet due to urination which I fail to feel and hence can't control, I'm not diabetic. What is the cause and what is the treatment. Please advice.
Dear doctor, I am 74 years old man, while passing urine I feel it's burning. This problem has been there for the last 15 days. Is it due to prostate gland problem. Awaiting your response. Thanks.
Changes in the colour of your urine can reveal important information about your health. If your urine takes on a hue beyond what's normal, it can be indicative of something wrong with your health. In general, the normal urine colour varies from pale yellow to deep yellowish-brown, which is a result of a chemical pigment in the urine called urochrome.
1. Red or Pink
- When your kidneys, urethra, bladder or any other urinary tract organ gets infected or inflamed, blood cells get leaked into the urine, giving it a red hue. The causes behind the presence of blood can be urinary tract infections, kidney cysts, kidney stones, enlarged prostate and even cancer. Taking blood thinners can also cause you to have blood in your urine.
- Certain foods like blackberries, rhubarb and beets can cause your urine to turn pink.
- The use of certain medications like a particular class of antibiotic used in the treatment of tuberculosis can turn your urine red. Likewise, a drug used to numb discomfort in the urinary tract can cause a red/pink discoloration of your urine.
2. Blue or Green
- The consumption of coloured food dyes containing green or blue pigments can cause you to pass urine of such hues.
- Certain anti-depressant and anti-inflammatory medications can turn your urine green/blue.
- A very rare medical condition called familial benign hypercalcemia (fbh), characterised by high levels of calcium in thE blood and low levels of the mineral in the urine can cause your urine to turn blue.
- Green urine can also occur if your urinary tract gets infected by the pseudomonas bacteria.
3. Dark Brown
- Having large amounts of these foods - aloe, rhubarb (a type of leafy green) and broad beans can cause you to pass dark brown urine.
- Certain anti-malarial drugs, laxatives and muscle relaxants can darken the colour of your urine as well.
- Dark brown urine can also be caused by disorders of the kidney or liver as well as infections of the urinary tract.
- Injury of the muscle as a result of excessive training can result in dark brown urine.
- Problems with the bile duct (the duct through which bile from the gall bladder and liver passes before entering the duodenum) or liver along with the passing of light coloured stools can result in orange urine.
- A cause of orange urine may also be dehydration as fluids bring about an increase in the concentration of compounds present in the urine.
- The presence of calcium or phosphate sediments in the urine can give it a white hue.
- White urine can also be a result of funguria infection (a form of fungal urinary infection wherein the fungus produces white sediments) or a bacterial infection. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Here are causes, symptoms, treatment of Gall Bladder Stones
Hello everyone. Basically, I’m a trained surgical gastroenterologist. And I’m also trained in liver surgery pancreatic surgery and surgery is related to the bile duct and liver transplantation. Basically, I offer all the surgical services in advance laparoscopy. We even do what we call commonly as a weight-loss surgery or bariatric surgery. And we are an extremely experienced team when it comes to dealing with complicated liver surgery gastrointestinal surgery and pancreatic surgery and things like that. The occurrence and incidence of gallbladder stones what we call them as also called in little bit medical terms as cholelithiasis or calculi in the gallbladder. Surprisingly is quite more than all of us think it is a disease or a situation is very common in urban society now. I think it has also changed with a period of time because with the changing habits of eating our lifestyles stress and everything the in general incidence of GA this gone up and we see a large number of patients with what we call as gallbladder stones.
Now for quite a few of these patients, the gallbladder stones may be present in the body but the patient or the person himself may or may not be aware of it. The very fact that the person becomes aware of it is because the gallbladder stones start producing symptoms. Now we divide these patients broadly into two categories the first category is a very what we call as classic presentation were in a patient will have abdominal pain retching sometimes vomiting. The pain is so excruciating that it will not subside with one or two tablets may need some injections and a few of them also need hospitalization. Treatment of gall stones now let me make it very clear that there is no definite to curative treatment of gallstones through any medicine or injection. When we see this the symptoms of cholelithiasis or gallbladder stone pain they can be taken off by medicines this will give a temporary relief to the patient but the curative treatment is not available in terms of medicine.
So what do we do next? The simplest thing is we need to do an operation and remove the gallbladder. In medical terms, this is called as a cholecystectomy and in the modern era or simple operation than to a laparoscope called laparoscopic. Cholecystectomy is an ideal treatment for this problem. The moment I shared this with my patients I tell them that you have to remove your gallbladder for gallbladder stones. The question asked is that “what will happen when you remove the gallbladder?” As in kidneys, we remove the kidney stones we don’t remove the kidney but in gallstones, we have to. One of the simplified answers which I have given to my patients is that presence of a stone in kidney won’t affect the function of the kidney at the latch. But the presence of gallstones and gallbladder the function of the gallbladder goes down it becomes a bag of infection it invites infection and repeated attacks of pain and there by a surgical removal of the gallbladder with stones is an ideal treatment. It is done through a laparoscope as I’ve already mentioned to you with minimal cuts on your body.
In less than five percent situations due to medical reasons, anesthesia fitness related issues are some other problems intraoperatively this operation is also done in a conventional way which is called as an open cholecystectomy. The most important thing here to remember is that gallstones are best treated when they have not produced complications and thereby I request all my viewers my patients and followers to not take this entity lightly don’t ignore gallstones be alert and get treated comprehensively by a simple operation.
I would be very happy to share all my parts and use with my viewers through Lybrate which is a wonderful medium. Patients needing further assistance can always come to my consultation and we can treat them the best of the ability. Thank youlaparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Bladder cancer can be caused by a variety of factors, which include genetic factors, inheritance, drugs, chemicals, environment related factors and smoking. In fact, smoking tobacco is one of the major causes of bladder cancer around the world. The chemicals present in tobacco can irritate the bladder lining which ultimately leads to bladder cancer. Besides smoking other important environmental factors might be chemotherapy, exposure to chemicals from newspaper, dye, leather, paints industries.
Symptoms of bladder cancer are as follows:
Most often it occurs in people more than 50 years of age. It can present in different ways, but common symptoms being :
- Painless hematuria - reddish or brownish colored urine with or without clots Increased frequency of urination Pain while passing urine .
- Difficulty in passing urine
The diagnosis requires a proper imaging workup including ultrasound, CT scan and urine examinations. Following the initial imaging, a biopsy is required to confirm the diagnosis and stage the disease. This is done by cystoscopy under anesthesia.
Treatments for bladder cancer.depend on the stage of cancer. Broadly bladder cancers can be categorised into Non-invasive and Invasive cancers.
- For non-invasive cancers: It requires recurrent cystoscopic surveillance and resection. For those with high risk of tumor recurrence or progression, intravesical chemotherapy or immunotherapy might be required.
- For invasive cancers the various treatment choices are:
- Surgery: For localised tumor which are amenable to resection perhaps surgery is the best possible treatment. This is a major undertaking where in whole of bladder along with accessory organs is removed. The surgeon may offer choices for reconstruction between neobladder (refashioning bladder with patient's gut) or ileal conduit (fashioning a stoma over which bag can be worn to collect urine). Following surgery a regular follow up is required and the prognosis is good.
- Chemotherapy: This modality is reserved for patient's where surgery is not possible or they have metastatic disease (disease spread to other body parts).In this method, medications are used to target and destroy cancer cells.
- Radiation Therapy: This might be and option for patient's that are not suitable for surgery. Radiation therapy uses gamma rays to destroy cancer cells in the body The key to good prognosis in bladder cancers is early detection timely intervention and good follow up. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.
