Intermittent terminal hematuria,but dipstick negative. Could microscopic urianalysis reveal bladder cancer? If urianalysis negative, what other cause?

Cysto: Terminal hematuria is likely from bladder or urethra. Has your doctor suggested cystoscopy? I would not be worried about bladder cancer in a 25 year old but giving you a cause would be guessing. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can bladder cancer be seen on ultrasound? If u/s shows no tumor, should further testing be done on a child with gross terminal hematuria? Not a uti.

Can bladder cancer be seen on ultrasound? If u/s shows no tumor, should further testing be done on a child with gross terminal hematuria? Not a uti.

Here are some ...: Ultrasound study only gives a gross rough imaging assessment with low sensitivity for small lesions. So, it is an absolute saying no bladder cancer. Terminal gross hematuria suggests its origin from the urethra, especially prostate urethra. So, a cystourethroscopy under anesthesia is needed. But, how far an evaluation should go for? It should be individualized. So, ask and talk with Doc timely. ...Read more

If a cystoscope and CT scans are negative can I be sure i don't have bladder cancer? I have micro hematuria asymptomatic

Most likely: You can be sure there is nothing big and obvious. A cystoscope will find lesions, masses or polyps that are quite small. There is always a risk of flat lesions or "carcinoma in situ", and if you are high risk, then periodic urine cytology or molecular testing may be helpful for screening. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
