Kidney stone?: Just based on the limited symptoms you described, it could possibly be a kidney stone. Lower back pain at the costal-vertebral angle that radiates into the groin and scrotum could be a symptom of a kidney stone. I would suggest following up with a urologist for a second opinion. ...Read more

Get pelvic exam: Make sure you had a pelvic exam. This is to look for other causes that might not show up on these tests, such as pelvic floor muscle spasms and urethral diverticulum. There is a condition called "bladder pain syndrome" which is based on having these symptoms for a chronic period in the absence of other identifiable causes. Sometimes physicians use urinary analgesics to relieve your symptoms. ...Read more

Here are some...: Trace blood on chem-strip urine test is not uncommonly, and microscopic urinalysis should follow to verify if degree of microhematuria is clinically significant or not. In practice, microscopic urinalysis shows 3-5 red blood cells per high power field is significant. Such patients will need further evaluation with imaging studies for kidneys, cystoscopy, etc. More specific detail? Ask Doc timely. ...Read more

1st urinalysis showed blood, bili, pro. 2nd was clean. CBC and Comp. Metobolic panel were all normal. Should I be concerned?

1st urinalysis showed blood, bili, pro. 2nd was clean. CBC and Comp. Metobolic panel were all normal. Should I be concerned?

No: Often, there is a tiny amount of blood in the urine which causes the positive dipstick for blood/bilirubin. Perhaps a little protein also present. Very reassuring that 2nd specimen was normal as were blood tests. At your age, I would probably do nothing more. Most prudent would be to do another urinalysis or two in next few weeks to make sure the 2nd, and not the 1st, was the true result. ...Read more
