Microscopic blood in urine

Posted , 3 users are following.

Worried urine always cloudy and sometimes no infection showing ! Have had stage 4 endometrial cancer 3 years ago. Had hysterectomy and 6 rounds of chemo.  Most times I have a urine test there is a trace of blood, not visible to the eye. Scared of bladder cancer. Have booked myself a private ultrasound of the bladder and kidneys tomorrow to put my mind at ease. They did scan me sometime ago and found nothing but that was just after my op three years ago,  Any info would be appreciated.  Thanks

    I can understand why you are worried. I worry about everything health wise. I had recurrent symptoms of UTI not always with any infection present but urine tests revealed traces of non visible blood.

    I asked to see a urologist who told me that non visible blood is common in ladies of a certain age (I am 64).  I had a cystoscopy which was uncomfortable but not painful, results showed nothing to worry about in my bladder.  I was prescribed medication for overactive bladder and long term low dose antibiotics to keep infections in check.  This was over 6 months ago and I have had no further symptoms and my repeat urine tests have all been crystal clear.

    You are doing the right thing getting checked out.

    Take care of yourself and please keep in touch.
