Re: Microscopic Blood in Urine

I've had microscopic hematuria for 20+ years. It was initially pretty worrisome, so I know how unsettling it can be going through the work-ups and looking for a reason, or ruling things out. You are doing the right thing by getting it checked out, but no need to panic. Mine has never turned up anything other than some inflammation of the trigone area of the bladder - seen on cystoscopy. I've read to think of it like a harmless nosebleed. Hope all the news you get is good.

Re: Microscopic Blood in Urine

Still going through the process. Ultrasound and CT scan came back negative. I'm trying to avoid the scope. The amount of microscopic hematuria is less than originally found. I've been given a reprieve to see if goes away on its own. I'm taking full advantage.
