Thank you for the query.

The only way both conditions are associated is urinary bladder cancer which involves large intestine. Otherwise, blood in the urine appearence after this test is just a coincidence. Usually blood in urine appears due to urinary tract infection, stones or urinary bladder cancer. I suggest you to have urine analysis performed and visit urologist for cystoscopy.

Hope this will help.
