For the last few days I've experienced gross hematuria (visible, dark red blood in urine) only after sexual intercourse. The first time I pee after sex the urine is visibly dark red, sometimes with streaks of what appears to be pure blood, by the second time I pee, the urine is back to yellow (though sometimes still retains a faint blood aroma). I was treated for testicular cancer approximately 2 years ago, I underwent minor surgery (left testicle removed for biopsy) and 6 weeks of chemotherapy. All check ups to date have been negative of any signs of cancer. I currently live in China, but will return to the US for a full check-up with my oncologist in 2 weeks time. Is this issue so urgent that I should expedite my return? Should I run some basic tests here in China before returning? Or should I monitor the symptoms and discuss it with my oncologist when I return (probably also schedule an appointment with a urology specialist)?
