Hello, welcome to just answer and thank you for your question.

There is no unit of blood in urine (hematuria).

Hematuria may be in small amounts (micro) or in large amounts (macro).

Hematuria can be due to many conditions and is usually considered significant.
Common causes are kidney infection, stones in the kidney or ureter, taking blood thinners, cancer of the urinary tract.
