Worried.. ;(

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi guys, 

I am a 32 year old female and had moderate microscopic blood detected in my urine too recently. Kidney blood test is normal. I have flank and leg pains that comes on and off. I’m damn worried it is kidney disease or bladder cancer.  Can someone share with me their readings on the amount of blood (ery/Ul)detected in their urine test but all tests come back fine? Mine is moderate so I’m really scared ;(

    I have been there......no good telling you not to worry.....but at your age...even if it was bladder cancer (which I doubt)early detection is nearly 100% treatable......its probably an infection which will clear up with antibiotics.I had quite a lot of blood, turned out to be polyps in my bladder which were removed and found to be non cancerous.

    You will be OK !!!!!

      Hi Barnie, 

      Thanks for replying. The thing is urine dip stick pick up no infection, no protein, except for miscroscopic blood so doc say no UTI. Yes I understand they referred me but I’m so scared to go and see the specialist for further tests. 

      Recently, I started having leg pain and pain in pelvis! They feel lk nerves pain. It is not constant but it can  be quite a sharp pain sometimes. Sometimes, when I urine I do feel The pain but aft it’s done, the pain eases. 

      Every of my symptoms seem to point to bladder cancer so I’m really worried. 

      Nevertheless, thanks  for replying. It makes me feel slightly better.

      Hey there, 

      I totally know what that feeling feels like!! I’ve had it for the whole month of June, and still have it !!  You don’t have cancer.... I’m 99% sure of this.... you possibly have a stone... with the pain in the legs. I also have this... I know it’s scary... I was so worried I had bladder cancer, but I have Interstitial Cystitis after a really bad uti... look up symptoms of IC.  Stay in contact!!

    Hi chery. I was told that any blood in your urine means u need a full work up. Mainly cystoscopy and CT scan. This is of course if there is no bacteria or infection. Do u have a UTI?

      Hi cheryl. You are correct u definitely need a full microscopic urinalysis. You have a very small chance of bladder cancer. I remember stressing myself out for weeks always looking into research and even paid online to speak to specialists. What is your doctor saying. It will all work out in the end. Best of luck.

    Hi. I’m 34 and also had microscopic blood in my urine. I had to get a CT scan and cystoscopy which were both normal so now I am being told it could be interstitial cystitis. I was super nervous but I think at our age some of the scarier stuff (bladder cancer, etc ) is very rare. Best wishes.

    I have microscopic blood in my urine (large amounts) and left side flank pain.

    I had to have an ultrasound of kidneys and bladder, intravenous urogram of kidneys and bladder and then finally a cystoscope. 

    Thankfully all all the tests came back normal ☺️.

    I worried myself ill thinking I had cancer and I know it’s hard but please try to think positively.  I still have large amounts of microscopic blood in my urine and left side flank pain but anything sinister has been ruled out.

    I am sure everything will be OK.

      I always habe blood in urine..I have had test done and all came back normal.. I am under a cafe if a uro gynecologist and she doesn't seem o worry about the blood in urine. I usually get uti that won't go away..So I had to stay on an antibiotic to help stabilize the symptomatic low grade infection.

    Hi Cheryl

    I do have left side pelvic pain but no leg pain or burning feeling in my vagina.

    I have microscopic blood and protein in my urine but no UTI.

    I know its hard not to worry and when you google symptoms it scares the life out of you but remain positive.  The tests that you will go through are stressful but necessary to get to the bottom of your symptoms.

    You can always PM me if you have any other worries.
