Urinary Tract Cancers
I am in school going as a medical assistant and we did a urinalysis on eachother and mine came out differently than the others and my instructer could not figure it out and I was concerned not knowing if I should go to the doctor or not. Maybe you could help me. My urinalysis classified renal tubular&WBC.Should I be concerned?
This could represent a urinary tract infection and I suggest you consult with a physician who can evaluate you. I am sure that he/she will repeat the urinalysis.
