Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Presence of mucus is not abnormal in the urine examination as mucus as such is never present in the urine. It is present in your report due to the contamination of your sample by vaginal secretions. You can repeat the test to be sure and before giving the sample wipe your vagina properly.

My 4yr old grand daughter had a mucus discharge from her urine a few days ago. I have been checking her urine since then and it seems cloudy and continues to show some particles in it. She is not complaining of any pain. A urine test was done and they found some protein in the urine. Can you explain what that is and what can be done to make her well?
