I am a 31 year old male. I recently had lab work done for a routine physical exam. I got back urinalysis results to an online dashboard. The chemical urinalysis stated I had a small amount of blood. Then, a microscopic test was completed, which showed 0-3 RBC and 0-2 WBC. My Doctor can't see me or discuss the results with me until next Monday. I am very concerned about this result.
