Other than cancer, what would cause microscopic blood in the urine?

Microhematuria. One of the most common referrals for urologic evaluation. Infection, kidney stones, enlarged prostate, blood thinner use, and many other issues can cause this condition. If persistent then you need to see a urologist for evaluation.
Many possibilities . Blood in the urine can be caused by a cancerous tumor, a bladder polyp, an infection, interstitial cystitis, a kidney stone, and kidney disease. Additionally, blood can also be present on a urinanalysis from extra-urinary sources such as vaginal orrectal bleeding.
Stones! Kidney stones, infections, or other kidney diseases can cause blood in the urine.
Many causes. There are numerous causes of micro-hematuria, but the ones we worry about the most are kidney and bladder cancer. Microscopic bleeding can be caused by stones, infection, trauma, etc. For more info, go to website and click on patient videos where you will find one on hematuria: www.Bergenurological.Com.
Lots of things. You should get it checked out. Most causes are benign. Small stones, cysts in the kidneys, maybe a mild uti.

Hypercoagulability. Your fasting glucose level is OK. F/U with your HEM/ONC to prevent further clots and to check your labs. You may need to have your medication adjusted if you are having hematuria. Have you had an abdominal u/s or CT scan to check your pancreas? This would be a more accurate test for pancreatic lesions. Good Luck and feel better. Read more...

No need to worry. When cancer is the cause of veinous thrombosis or embolism(VTE) it is usually apparent at the time of the VTE, or becomes apparent in the next few months. If a year has gone by since the VTE it's VERY UNLIKELY due to hidden cancer. Studies show only a tiny increased risk of a yet undiagnosed cancer at 1 year.
