Watch if it resolves: Uti an cause blood in the urine; this should clear up once the infection has been controlled which can take one to two weeks. Then get another urine test done. If the red cells(blood) in the urine persists then you should go see a urologist to make sure that your bladder is healthy and cancer free. It is unlikely that you have bladder cancer.
