white particles, tissue, mucus in urine

Just a general question for all you ladies.  Maybe someone can shed some light on this.  I have been trying to google to find out some answers.  I have large amounts of tissue looking particles in my urine.  some looks like discharge and some are large.  my urine smells but I have no pain.  Could the cyst on my kidney be doing this?  or endo?  I am so confused.  i have urgency to pee all the time and i pee about 25-30 times a day.  drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day.  I sometimes almost dont make it to the bathroom and when i get there i either cant go right away or i go so fast that there is a pressure pain down there and than when i am done i stand up and it still comes out or i stand up and wait about 2-3 min because i know that I am goign to have to go again?  Is this normal?  Same issues with my bowel as well, the urgency part. than nothing i cant go.

Any kind of information would br great.. like what is the white stuff in my urine?

I agree with Suzsen, you need to see a urologist asap.  Sometimes, the urgency, and pressure/pain can be caused by a bladder infection, but I do not know about the tissue in you urin.  I did have tissue looking particles in my urin after I had to have a cathater for 2 weeks.  I will be praying for you.  Kasie

Please make an appointment with a urologist and if they wont see u within a couple of days go to urgent care. This is not normal. You need to rule out infection and check on status of cyst on your kidney.  Erika

The "white stuff" is likely albumin, a form of protein.  It is not normal to have large amounts of protein in the urine.  Please see your doctor, soon.

Weird eh.  I do remember that when my kids and I have had bladder infections, you could see stuff floating around in the specimens... but maybe we just don't usually look at our pee in little plastic bottles held up to the light!  
Hey you didn't drink like a ton of orange juice with lots of pulp did you?  Well it's just a thought....
I still think you should get it checked out....
Love, Katie

I have been checked so many times for bladder infections and I have never had one. i have always had that stuff in my urine but not this much and not so big.  I have today pee'ed like 20 times since i posted this and the pieces get smaller and smaller.  Maybe I am flushing them out because I am drinking so much water?

I don't know but if I were you I'd see a urologist asap.  I don't think endo affects your urine.

Yes, I think that a urinary tract condition could raise one's CA-125 level.

Do you think the white particles could be yeast? I've been wondering that about myself. I notice when I take garlic I see more of them and so I was trying to figure out i I was killing off yeast?

I have had blood in my urine and also chunks of blood tinged tissue, I have strained my urine now for several months - I have sand....a type of kidney stone but of coarse much smaller, that it can not be seen by a ct scan, the only way to tell is by straining and looking very carefully also they can attach themselves to the tissue that passes and can be seen under microscope... it is very painful - resembling a UTI, and can last as long as it takes your body to flush it ou....It can be recurring and annoying and extremely painful....but when you know for sure that this is what is going on it can be relieved with medicine to take the edge and spasming away....I hope this helps
Peace , Love and Good Health

You need to see a Urologist and ask about Interstitial Cystitis (IC).  I'm not saying that's what you have, but those are symptoms.  I have IC and it's no picknick.

Google it and you'll find a website dedicated to IC, or pm me and I'll give it to you.

Best of luck to you and I hope you find relief soon.
