It is your choice whether to heed you doctor's advice, but urinary bleeding and infection in a male of your age, needs further evaluation. The cystoscopy recommendation is appropriate. Maybe a second opinion would provide more reassurance.

If you want to defer cystoscopy you should ask for a urine test within the next 3 months. If blood is present again, you should have cystoscopy done.
