Any Blood in the urine must be fully investigated..Some people may have microscopic henaturia(blood seen under a microscope ) and could be nothing serious…However, you should see a Urologist, but before that get a urine culture ,urine cytology. Checking fir cancer…Hopefully, a rectal exam was done as well, checking your Prostate…A Urologist may probably want a X-ray and do cystoscopy of bladder.
