Blood In Urine. Reason Not Found Out. Any Ideas?

I have had blood in my urine for years. Not visible but indicated by urine test in varying degrees never to exceed moderate. Have been to the doctor for this problem and no reason can be found. One doctor indicated that some women just have blood in their urine. Is this true. Should I be worried since I have had this for so long?

Hello
Thanks for writing to HCM

You didn't mentioned your age .Causes varies with age.
It is true that hematuria(blood in urine) can be idiopathic(reason not known).
But, it may be associated with many conditions and it should be excluded.
You need proper clinical examination and investigations.
Causes of hematuria may be renal or urinary bladder calculus,tumour,trauma,UTI,STD etc.
Investigation include routine hemogram,RBS,urine RE/ME, ultrasound of abdomen,CT Scan of abdomen if needed.
Treatment depends upon clinical findings and investigation reports.

Take Care
