Has UTI and vaginal bleeding. Is it cancer?

my mother is 82 and is having her second uti in a couple of months....this time she presented with vaginal bleeding ....but the anitbiotic she is on now seems to be helping ie no more pain or bleeding......however her physician ordered an ultrasound and she has waited 2 days with no results back yet....she is very scared it may be something else.....was this test just done as a precautionary measure or do you think her dr. suspects cancer?

HI, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
FIrst of all, bleeding from vagina may indicate some premalignant conditions in this age group.
If, USG is ok then the patient should be examined for any lesion by using the speculum.
What you will do?
Wait for few days for any recurrence of bleeding and then if bleeding occur again go to gynaecologist for a thorough checkup.
