Question Blood in Urine

I had blood in my urine two weeks ago when I went to my GYN for my annual checkup. They had me go to the lab so they could culture my urine, but the culture came back negative. They asked me to come back in two weeks which was today. There is still blood and they have referred me to a Urologist. I am going on Friday. What can I expect from this initial appointment of Friday? What might be the cause of the blood?

Check out this link, it has a doctor giving an answer to that very question from a female:

I would have cut and pasted it myself but that would probably violate copyright laws.

Best wishes, Al

It is good that you are going to see a urologist. I had blood in my urine when I was in my 30's and the gyn kept treating me for UTI's I finally went to an urologist on my own and I had a bladder tumor. They removed the tumor, and it was a low grade tumor (O-1. I am checked now every year, although in the beginning I had to go every three months. If I didn't pursue this I would not be here today, if has been over 15 years. Good Luck
