In brief: Needs evaluation

Any degree of blood in the urine (whether its microscopic or visible/gross) needs to be fully evaluated.
Sources of blood in the urine may be either benign (e.g., infection, stones) or malignant. A malignancy anywhere in the urinary tract may cause hematuria - from the kidenys all the way dwn to the urethra. This is why patients need imaging and cystoscopy to evaluate hematuria.

In brief: Not necessarily CA

Blood in the urine (hematuria) has many possible causes, including kidney/bladder stones or kidney cysts, urinary tract infections, urethral trauma.
Cancers commonly associated with hematuria include renal cell carcinoma (a kidney cancer), and bladder cancer. (see also dr. Klauber's very important comment.).

Glomerulonephritis is the most common cause of hematuria in children. This is a medical condition most commonly after a streptococcal , best treated by a nephrologist, and also occurs less commonly in adults.
