So scared of blood in urine

Ive been posting hopingformore insight. Had a urine test which showed blood in urine which I can't see when urinating. All I keep thinking is bladder cancer. I can't even function. Does all blood in urine mean cancer. Everything else on test was normal. Thanks.

You are stressing yourself out unnecessarily.
Hope your cystoscopy appointment is soon so that you will know exactly what the problem is.

Don't forget to keep drinking your water.

Blood in the urine can be caused by several things.  Glad your having a cystoscopy. In my case I had kidney stones that caused bleeding from the stones traveling down my ureter

Well a cystoscopy will enable the urologist to see what's going on. The scope has a camera on it and the urologist will be able to inspect everything and hopefully find what's causing hematuria. Hematuria is not considered normal.

Stones don't always cause pain.  Especially if they do not move.

But like ellen038 says the urologist will be able to inspect everthing and find what is causing the microsopic blood in your urine.  

Has your appointment come through yet?

Best wishes

I have been doing that since I was 14 I am 38 now.. I have had every test ran on me to find the cause never got any answers.. I was told not to worry. So once you rule out all causes I would not be concerned moving forward...
