Blood in urine, no pain or fatigue, advised CT scan, cystoscopy. What do symptoms indicate?

Last week I had very visible blood in my urine for 3 days. An urgent care clinic informed me it was not an infection and refered me to a urologist . I went to the urologist on the 4th day and there was no visible blood but microscopic. I am having a CT scan and cystoscopy next week. I am a healthy 30 year old woman, non-smoker. I have no pain and no other symptoms besides fatigue . Is it likely that I have cancer, stones, or kidney disease?

Welcome to HCM.
Blood in urine is most likely due to stone or crystal passing in the urine.
You have to go for CBC,urine and USG abdomen to reach the diagnosis.
Start treatment accordingly.
If diagnosis is not confirmed and symptoms presist than go for second line of investigations like ct scan,cystoscopy.
Keep in touch with your doctor.

General & Family Physician Dr. Shoaib Khan's  Response
Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

From your presentation, the possibilities are present, the most likely diagnosis after ruling out infections that could be that of an impacted stone, but all conditions possible include:
-Kidney diseases (eg. glomerulonephritis)
-Stones in the renal system (kidney, ureter, etc.)
-Strenuous exercise
-Medications (eg. blood thinners, etc.)
-Other rare hereditary diseases
-Cancer (rare)

A cystoscopy and CT scan are investigations that will provide very accurate and precise information on your condition, so please go ahead with these. You could choose to write back to me for an interpretation and further guidance, or visit a urologist or nephrologist depending on your diagnosed condition. Please share all other symptoms you could be experiencing with your doctor when you visit him/her.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: . I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
