Not necessarily CA: Blood in the urine (hematuria) has many possible causes, including kidney/bladder stones or kidney cysts, urinary tract infections, urethral trauma. Cancers commonly associated with hematuria include renal cell carcinoma (a kidney cancer), and bladder cancer. (see also dr. Klauber's very important comment.).
Dr. George Klauber

Glomerulonephritis is the most common cause of hematuria in children. This is a medical condition most commonly after a streptococcal , best treated by a nephrologist, and also occurs less commonly in adults.

Many possibilities : Blood in the urine can be caused by a cancerous tumor, a bladder polyp, an infection, interstitial cystitis, a kidney stone, and kidney disease. Additionally, blood can also be present on a urinanalysis from extra-urinary sources such as vaginal orrectal bleeding.

Also from hypercalcuria - excess calcium in urine. Crystals in kidney tubules can cause microscopic and sometimes gross blood in the urine
