A 19-year-old female asked:

i went to the doctors and tested positive for hematuria, they told me that this was uncommon for my age (19 f), they are going to run more tests on the urine sample, what may this mean and what more details can they find out?

Hard to speculate: There are some that have hematuria based on a faulty test (poor collection or lab error). It can sometimes accompany rather benign kidney or bladder issues or it can mean something more worrisome. Repeat testing and or different tests are what is done to begin the process of deciding how serious (or not) it may be.
