Blood in urine???

I had a CT scan a year  ao without contrast, which showed nothing. I was having flank pain. They said I had a level 2 infection??? Treated with bactrim 3 days. Now I see blood in my urine. However, I have been taking Aleve for back pain from a bad gallbladder, and antacids w/tagament. I thought I see pink in comode a while back, but for sure saw blood two nights ago.   I'm scared!!!  Surely renal cancer would have been seen last year from what I understand it grows slow and before symtoms (symptoms) are seen it's usually advanced.  Any ideas? I did a  home test for UTI and it was negative.

You need a urine culture, a CT with contrast (the stone protocol CT you had is not adequate for blood),followed by a cystoscopy.

Then +/- urine cytologies depending on your smoking history and chemical exposure.
