microscopic blood in urine - so worried

Just got back from Uro/gyno doctor. 64 year old woman, never smoked, exercise alot.

Had pain during intercourse in certain positions, and minor urine leakage when coughing, etc. They wanted to do a pelvic ultrasound....No problem w/cervix, uterus, etc.

However, they did find that my bladder looked a "little abnormal". Also have microscopic blood in urine. Asked how many times that happened and I know I had it for at least 2 years...Doc said no problem.

Now I'm frantic, thinking I have bladder cancer. No other symptoms.

The doctor referred me to a urologist next. He will do a cystoscopy which will cost me thousands of $$$ due to poor insurance plan.

Would like to know if I should get a second opinion first. (The doc/hospital I went are very reputable)

Thank you.
Barbara
