What does a trace of blood in urine mean?

Hematuria

Open-uri20130830-29737-8r8ew3
If you have hematuria (H), you need to find its cause. First have a urine culture to see if you have a UTI. If not, see a urologist (U) for an evaluation of the H. The U will order a renal ultrasound and an IVP to assess the state of your kidneys. If those tests are negative, a cystoscopy, to see the bladder wall, may be needed. If you don't have a UTI, see a U to find the cause of it. Good luck.

What does trace-intact blood in urine mean?

Need workup

Blood
Trace blood in urine means you will need a repeat urinalysis and then a workup by a urologist if this is confirmed with microscopic examination of urine to have 3 or more red blood cells per high power field. If you have this amount or more of red blood cells, you will need a urine culture, cytology, imaging (CT scan), and cystoscopy=camera to look inside the bladder. See your urologist.

What does trace of occult blood in urine mean?

Need more tests

Occult_blood
Specifically, you need to have a urinalysis and urine culture by your doctor. If on two urinalyses, there are 3 or more red blood cells per high per field under microscope, then you will need a full workup. The workup includes urine cytology, imaging (CTscan usually), and camera to look inside the bladder (cystoscopy).

What does it mean if you have a trace of occult blood in urine?

Runs the gamut...

Urine_drug_screen
The fact that it is a trace amount is the best news - just keep an eye on it. The fact that there is blood in your urine may indicate kidney stone, infection, prostate cancer, or the simple act of running or driving daily and causing the minor bouncing trauma of those activities that cause your kidneys to leak a little blood. Could be something, could be nothing. Something to follow, though.

What does 1 blood in urine mean?

Blood +1

Open-uri20131007-32341-c0jrbq
If there 1+ blood it is entering your urine in some way. Are there symptoms like burning with urine, flank pain, recent infection, etc? In females this is common with recent period. Labs use a convention with a scale: 0, trace, +1 to +4 for blood and other substances. See your doctor for further follow up as this needs to be looked at in a clinical context to be sure everything is good.

What does a lot of blood in urine mean?

Time to see urology

Urine
This is serious. It can be infection, stone, cancer or many other things but it needs to be checked out. In a 24 year old woman it's probably infection but you need to be cultured and treated.

What can microscopic blood in urine mean?

Hematuria...

Open-uri20130924-25813-18vettt
Per AUA guidelines of 2012, if you have >3 red blood cells in a urine sample and are over age 35, you should see a urologist for a work up. If you are younger than 35, the urologist may choose to observe you or work you up, depending on your risk factors. The standard work up consists of a triple-phase CT scan and cystoscopy (a camera in the bladder). This standardized work up determines cause.
