Red blood cells seen: That means some red blood cells were seen in the urine sample. The patient then has to talk with the doctor to figure out where the blood cells came from. Sometimes they are from a menstrual period. If that's the case, repeating the urine test a couple of times on days during her cycles when there is no vaginal bleeding should show urine without red blood cells. One's Dr. can review all results.

Agree with Dr. K: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Depending on how much blood is in urine, it may require additional investigation, Wish you good health!
