What causes blood in urine?

husband went to VA hospital. they found trace of blood in his urine. not automatically noticeable but detected through tests. now they want him to come back to urinologist (sp?) and one other test - I forgot. They didn t schedule it until 2 weeks later so I assume it s not serious. What could it be? he s 56 and will bee 57. Help.

Urologist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, i must assure you, that microscopic hematuria isn't serious.
The Urologist examination of the patient is very important.
He'll need to have PSA checked before that,if possible. He should also get blood routine,creatinine,sugar and platelets tested with it.
Urine culture should also be done.
According to reports, after the examination, the Urologist will advise treatment. If you want my expert opinion,you may send reports as a dierect question. Dr.Matthew J. Mangat.
