If not associated with any complaints like burning micturation, fever or blood in urine. You need not worry.

Normally 1-2 epithelial cells are seen while urine test. This relatively high. if the findings included pus cells, then there is a cause to worry.

It was discovered that I had microscopic hematuria after my most recent annual exam. The doctor gave me antibiotics for an abnormal vaginal culture. (possibly a UTI). After 10 days I had a recheck and still positive for RBC (+3). I had a CT of my kidneys and no stones or tumors. They now want to do a cytoscopy. I ve been having IBS symptoms lately, too. Can this cause hematuria?
