The leukocytes: In your urine could mean that you did not use all 3 wipes to get everything REALLY clean before you collected the specimen- you should urinate into the toilet first, THEN collect the specimen. Hemolysis in your blood means that you either had a traumatic draw (you were a hard stick), they used too small of a needle, or whoever spun your blood down waited too long to seperate the cells from serum ...Read more

How high?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

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.
