Post afraid I might have kidney cancer

last year I went into the doctor and they told me I had a bacterial infection and trace of blood in my urine. I took antibiotics and that was that.

now for the past two weeks I have felt some urinary discomfort that feels like a bladder infection (had them before). on top of that have increased thirst, and pain that comes and goes in my lower back near my hip, and a feeling of being "out of it". I keep symptom searching on the internet which I know I shouldn't do, but my insurance doesn't go through until the 1st of the month so I have to wait until then for monetary reasons and that"pre-existing" condion clause.

I am a 29 year old female and I guess I am looking for anything else it could be>?

Have you ever had a kidney stone?

Hematuria, or blood in the urine can be caused by a number of reasons, malignancy being a small % of the causes (as I'm sure you've read by now). A number of years ago I required a full urological work up (ultrasounds, cysto, etc) to find the cause of my hematuria. Blood counts were 12 per high powered field in urine plus some atypical cells found in cytology reports. Cause determined to be viral which cleared up. You may have a chronic infection common in females...but wait for the workup.
