Red blood cells found in urine, hernia, cyst in kidney. How to treat them?

I am 56 years old, male. I got my urine tested after seeing that my that urine colour is dark yellow previously never had this problem. Any ways Urine DR indicates occassional Red Blood Cells. I also have a lump sort of protusion on my front upper thigh portion leading to the scrotum which I believe is the hernia . I had an ultrasound of whole upper abdomen in October 2012 tiny cysts were discovered in my kidneys. I am regularly jogging and doing physical exercises no weight training just plain flexibility workouts. My height is 5 feet 9 inches and weight is 60 Kg I dont have diabetes and hypertension . Do let me know what should I do? Is it something serious.

Welcome to HCM,
After going through your history,you seem to have inguinal hernia and for this you should consult a General Surgeon, please understand there is no medical treatment for hernia and you should get it operated to repair it if your muscles are weak a mesh of Dacron may be used.
Your urine showing RBCs this may be due to UTI, or an kidney stone if there commonly.
You can repeat a ultra sonography to see any abnormality in prostate or kidneys and bladder.
your surgeon may give course of urinary specific antibiotic for 7 to 10 days, you can repeat urine R&M.
Please continue to follow healthy lifestyle.
Take care
Good luck.
