Wait for evaluation: Wait for full report , it is good no visible tumor , always possible to have an early recurrence not seen by necked eye only by urine cytology , even if it is , possible to get rid of it. Speak to your doctor.

Several things: With a history of bladder cancer, recurrence would be a possibility. With a negative scope, this is less likely. Urinary tract stones, infection or prostate inflammation can also cause microscopic hematuria.
