Brief Answer: Microscopic hematuria Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query Since the blood gets dissolved in the urine you will not be able to appreciate the blood unless it is in large amounts, it is called microscopic hematuria. In other words blood in urine which can only be seen under the microscope. Upto 3 red blood cells is considered normal in males, however if there are more than 3 then it is abnormal and the most common reason for the hematuria is urinary tract infection, other causes of hematuria are renal calculus (stone), vasculitis,IgA nephropathy, ADPKD,glomerulo nephritis, etc. On the whole it is nothing to worry about It is difficult for me assess the urine test by just knowing that there is hematuria, could you please attach the entire urine test report. Also please let me know the symptoms for which you had approached the doctor like burning micturation, fever, abdominal pain, etc Please get back to me, I am awaiting your reply I wish you good health Regards

I have been having upper right abdominal pain for several mos now and Doc cant seem to find problem. I have had mri, ultra sound, slow stomach emptying test, endoscopy, and bloodwork. My gallbladder was removed in 2005 so that is not the issue. The pain seems to worsen about 20 mins after I eat or drink something. Mri showed simple cysts on my liver but doc says not cause of pain, endoscopy showed small hiatal hernia and inflamed stomach lining also says not the cause of the pain. I am pretty healthy 44 year old woman, I eat well and am not overweight. It feels like something is being pressed up against my rib cage causing the pain. but I supposed if there were some sort of mass the ultra sound and MRI would have picked that up... please help... --Mary
