    Red face Hematuria With No Apparent Cause - Really scared

    I found blood in urine yesterday (Saturday) So today I went to urgent care.

    The following tests were performed:
    "CBC With Differential"
    "Comprehensive Metabolic Panel"
    "Urinalysis With Microscopic"
    "XR Abdomen AP."

    Doctor said that everything appeared normal, but my GP may follow up with a CT scan. Why? I'm really scared about this, but I thought something really serious like a malignancy would show up in blood work. Any ideas??

    The Cat Scan is probably to check for Kidney Stones. I just went through a year plus of Kidney Stone Surgeries. Blood in the Urine is a symptom.

    I've had microscopic blood in the urine for about 25 years. I had several tests done years ago. The Dr, said it could be a tiny hole in lining where blood gets in. Said we may never know. But Kidney Stones kicking my butt. Feel better. Keep us updated.

    Yes the CT scan will show if stones are there. I have microscopic for the past 4 years since a kidney stone episode. They say some people just have that and ups you chances of getting the darn kidney stones again. I also had a cystoscopy done too, nothing found. I went for CT scan didn't show anything, it checks every organ out. I was happy that nothing was found, But I never got any answers. I think by the time I had the tests done I already passed the kidney stones. I just got a call from my urologist it is time for my 2 year follow up, I guess they want to check the urine again, but I get that checked every time I have my yearly physical and always shows microscopic. I just hope I don't have to go through a battery of tests again. Knock on wood no symptoms.

    I hope you get some answers soon. Let us know how you are doing.
