Does Finding Blood In My Urine Mean That I Have Bladder Cancer
Possibly: Blood in the urine (whether microscopic or gross) must be evaluated by a urologist. The degree of hematuria does not necessarily correlate with the size of the problem, so the evaluation would include laboratory testing, imaging of the urianry tract, and cystoscopy - a procedure to look inside the urethar and bladder with a telescope. Possible causes include infection, stones, and malignancy.See 1 more doctor answer

Cystoscope showed red areas biopsy was taken does this mean bladder cancer , had a lot of pain & blood in urine ?
Yes: Bladder cancer may cause visible blood in the urine or microscopic blood in the urine which is only picked up by urine tests.

No: Even if your blood tests and urinalysis are normal, one can still have bladder cancer. In fact, small bladder tumors can also easily be missed on radiographic studies. The gold standard test is to have an office procedure called a cystoscopy to visualize the bladder lining.See 1 more doctor answer
Micro blood in urine- 250+ result..Nurse said it was max. Dad had bladder cancer. Does this indicate cancer?32y/o woman who has never smoked.
Micro hematuria: Microhematuria in a 32-year-old female who has never smoked is not very likely to be due to bladder cancer. Bladder cancer is not really genetic in nature. Despite that, you should have a hematuria workup which would include imaging of your kidneys as well as a cystoscopy and a variety of possible urine studies.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 2 more doctor answers

I had bladder cancer 15 years ago. I had a trace of blood inmy urine. The doctor scoped me and found no tumor. He sent my blood to get a full report. What else could be the cause of blood in urine?
Lots of things: Congratulations on your cancer survival. With blood in the urine it's certainly possible that the tumor had returned but the scope is reassuring so that's clearly positive. Could be infection causing the blood, could potentially still be treatment related though typically that would have happened earlier. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Is ct mri scan enough to rule out bladder cancer. i was told i had glomeruly but asked for those both just in case. Microspic blood in urine. 26 y old?
Consider more: I'd be more worried if I had glomerulonephritis, to tell you the truth. About 1% of folks have lifelong hematuria from thin-glomerular basement membrane non-disease, but you have to get worked up from time to time. Ask whether it's worth getting cystoscoped. Best wishes.
