I also have a question about the vaginal wall. I have a large part of my vaginal wall allowing my colon to put pressure on my bladder. Can this cause the uti's?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

By "iti's" do you mean UTI?

If your UTI's are confirmed, they aren't very likely to be connected to cancer. However, there is some evidence that they could be connected to bladder cancer - read more about that study here (cut and paste): https://www.webmd.com/women/news/20150521/urinary-tract-infection-bladder-cancer

Regarding your colon putting pressure on your bladder due to your vaginal wall - could you explain this further for us? There is a connection with bacteria causing UTI's due to pressure in that area...
