Fearful re: bladder cancer. Have had microscopic blood in urine for nearly 2 years. Told due to warfarin. Now bladder not completely emptying. Often.

Not necessarily...: Blood in urine could be caused by multiple reasons. Most commonly UTI and stones. When it is painless it's worrisome for possible cancer but not necessarily. If you have been evaluated and already told it was caused by Coumadin (warfarin) most likely that is the reason. A cystoscopy gives a reliable diagnosis. Your symptoms could be caused by UTI so I advised you to see your pcp or urologist to evaluate further. ...Read more

What are the remaining possible causes of intermittant heavy blood in urine if the following tests proved negative: bacteria, lower body xray, internal bladder viewing, and prostate manipulation?

Need what you mean: Are you referring to digital rectal exam when you say "prostate manipulation".What do you mean by "lower body X-ray"? You should have CT scan of the abdomen with contrast because the blood is not necessarily coming from the bladder.It could be from the kidneys.
