Urinary Tract Cancers
Blood in urine
Female, 50 yrs., blood in urine per urinalysis with general check up, not visible by eye. Gynecologist records indicate same result past 4 years (done with Pap test). Can someone just have blood in their urine all the time without having kidney, bladder, urinary tract diseases?
Blood in urine is not uncommon and oftentimes is not associated with any specific problem. I wopuld discuss this with your gynecologist, for an evaluation of your kidneys and bladder would ensure that there in not an underlying cause.
