    Help - Microscopic Blood in Urine

    In Oct when I went for my check up the lab test said +1 in the urine. I went to a urologist and the dip said trace, two days later +1 then 2 days later trace. Just went back and now +1. He wants to do tests and I am so scared.
    I read everything to no cause to really bad stuff. What could this be?

    Hello, I have had this for 7 years, no known cause only that I am prone to get more kidney stones. I had kidney stones in 2012 and ever since I have microscopic blood, they have done a scope test, ct scan etc. found nothing. I have relatives that also have microscopic blood. No cause. I just had my yearly physical and its still there but now I have crystals, possible more stones. so not happy. Do not get too worried, they did that to me, I was scared I had cancer or something. Believe it or not there is a percentage of people that have it with no cause.

    Yes, I was too when first told about it! Don't read into it and trust your doctor, my urologist said when all came back fine not too worry. Although my general practitioner was concerned, I had to have the urologist contact her to discuss it. Now she knows its normal for me. LOL

    Thanks. I guess if it was something my urologist would be more concerned. Plus like I said he did the ultra sounds and scope of the bladder. What I thought was odd is it went trace to small to trace to small.
    Yeah I am overthinking it. Like you said this can be common for a lot of people.

    I see what you mean. 2018 showed a Trace now 1+ on this years. It does change every year, looking back, that is interesting.

    It is. He said it can stay this way or might just go back to normal.

    2 months ago I had this too. Blood in urine. I freaked out and thought I had cancer. Then it went away and came back. After a CT scan and cystocope nothing was found and next UA came back okay.

    Glad it went away. Did they ever give a reason for it?
