Hello again - I asked a question the other day about a hypodense renal mass seen on a CT scan. My husband's urinalysis was also positive for blood. The PCP told him that he was "not concerned about the renal mass" and that the blood in his urine was due to the mild diverticulitis/colitis seen on the CT as well.
I've worked for both urologists and gastroenterologists in the past - I've never heard of blood in the urine being associated with colitis.
Should we just bypass the PCP and move on to a urologist, in your opinion?
