Am I the only who has microhematuria here?

Posted , 4 users are following.

for as long as i can remember, every time i got a urine test, a doctor would say "oh, there's blood in your urine"

am i the only one who has this? 

is it hereditary? My dad and sister also have it. 

I went to the ER one time because I had bad flank pain on my kidneys and they were so sure that I had kidney stones because of the blood and protein in my urine, but ultrasound and CT scan were clear. 

Doctor did they some people just have it and have no reason why, if the urine culture didn't grow bacteria, then it's normal. and it was confirmed to be normal.

I am now 22 and remember hearing doctors make comments about blood in my urine since i was in pediatrics (under 17)

its Micro Hematuria, which means it's not visible to the naked eye, but it's visible in a urine test

just want to know if anyone else has this also and has been told they're fine.

i have generalized anxiety disorder and it revolves around my health, last thing i need it to worry about having kidney or bladder cancer

    Many have blood in thier urine, blood in Urine is usually a sign of problems with your urinary tract. Blood in urine itself is not hereditary, whatever causes it may be.

    Wow, you are awfully young for that. I hada hysterectomy in2014. I was fine for 6 months then began to leak urine, more and more. I just sa w a urologist that understood the problem, but doesn't want to do surgery unlitl I get control over the fibro as he thinks it would make the pain more untolerable ( is that even a word) .

    I have traces of blood and somestimes pieces of tissue from my insides. The doctor's freaked at first did a CAT scan of the pelvic and abodem and atest where they fill the bladder. But, they think this could have to do with the fibro (cramps and all)

      Yeah I've had this for as long as I can remember but the doctors have assured me I'm fine. It's scary to think about them probably missing something in an exam but idk. Since I've had this for so long I feel if it were some type of disease it would of been advanced now since I've not taken anything for it, but I feel fine. I have bad health anxiety and constantly think there is something wrong and out of curiosity I looked it up and freaked myself out. But what keeps me kind of calm about it is that my dad is the same way and so is my sister (it's written in her medical record/history that she has that) so I was thinking it was hereditary, genetic or something. I've had a ct scan of my whole lower area because the doctor thought kidney stones, appendicitis, bladder infection, etc. I even had a kidney ultrasound and they found nothing. So doctor just said it's one of those cases where it just happens. But now I'm considering getting checked or seeing a urologist to see if they can really figure out why this is happening.

      Ahh thank you Denise!! Yes this is exactly me! Doctors always have a look on my face and ask if I'm on my period and I say no. And they make comments about it but they do various urine cultures and all come back clear. I recently thought I had a uti and it came back negative. I even asked if there was blood in the it one and they said no. Which made me happy.

      I also have anxiety (generalized anxiety disorder) and it revolves around my health. That's why I needed to ask this. Thank you!
