Blood in urine

I went to my doctor today and was told that he thought I had acid reflux. He took a urine sample because this is my first time seeing him and it came back with a little trace of blood in it. If you look at the urine you can't see it. There wasn't enough urine for him to send it away to find ou the exact result. He told me that I can jsut stop by and give them a urine sample and they will send it out. He said it can be from a urinary tract infection, irritation, anything. When I asked him if he thought it was anything to be worried about, he said no. Of course he did. Don't they always?? When I looked up "blood in urine" on the internet it say UTI, kidney infection, kidney stones, and kidney and bladder cancer can be the result. I am a little worrited now, I don't have any symptoms of a UTI, So now I am think the worst. Any Advise??

Re: Blood in urine

I will say try not to worry too much about this. i know it's hard to do, but try. you can have a UTI and not have any symptoms, or not feel anything. so, go back and give your sample so it can be sent away to be checked out. and try not to worry.
good luck
hugs

Re: Blood in urine

Are you female?? If so, if you recently got off your period - even if you are "dry" (like say it's day number 8 or so) - it could be that. It happened with me!
