Blood in urine

Hello all, 

It's been 7 years since my kidney transplant. For the last 8 months, there would be trace of blood in the urine seen under the microscope. I dont see it visibly but the results haven't been cleared. My doctor wants me to get some tests done and a CT scan soon. Has everyone experienced this? I'm pretty nervous over the outcome. From a traumatic experience, I always seem to link symptoms with cancer.. Anyways, does anyone know what can cause this? It started last November. Thank you.

  • Especially because it's microscopic, the likelihood of it being a nothing-burger is very high. It could be nothing other than a slight irritation. Keep up with your docs, but try not to worry.

  • little RBC in urine is not a serious problem.  some doctors advice Kidney biopsy

  • I hope you are fine now  .. I had a same issue but it is on and off.  My doctor told me that it is okay as long as no protein leakage is happening.
