Blood in the urine

HI.

Thanks for coming to just answer.

What is your question?

I assume this is microscopic blood.

If kidney problems have been ruled out, you need a scope of the bladder.

At age 75 , bladder cancer must b e ruled out.

It is curable if discovered early, hence the need for the scope.

Blood of any sort in the urine is reason for concern.

It can be from infection, kidney disease, or bladder disease.
