What If I Have Blood in my Urine?

If you are told that you have microscopic hematuria, do not panic because most causes are not life threatening. Make sure that you get your urine test repeated right away. Your health care provider will then tell you whether you need to have further blood tests, urine tests or imaging tests such as x-rays and cystoscopy. Make sure to follow what your health care provider tells you to do, so that if there is a serious condition, it can be treated right away.
