Brief Answer:
Based on the information, I highly unlikely to be anything serious.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Muli
I have gone through your query and do understand your concern.

As you have mentioned that all your tests -- CT scan, blood test and urine tests are normal, you do not have to worry about it.

Blood in the urine is noted commonly in cases of urinary tract infection, stones in the urinary tract and or in bladder and very rarely due to some growth in urinary tract. Most of the time it is idiopathic and there won't be any cause.

Yes, excessive masturbation may cause some trauma to the urethra, which may be responsible for blood in the urine. I would suggest you to avoid it for few days.

Regarding your appointment with urologist -- it might be for cystoscopy, where one can directly visualise your bladder. It might be scheduled to make sure that there is nothing wrong with the linning of the bladder. It is done routinely , nothing to worry about it.

Hope this helps
Take care
