No this does not mean that you have cancer.hemoglobin in blood can be detected in a variety of conditions which include glomerulonephritis, urinary tract infections, hemolytic uremic syndrome, idiopathic thrombocytic purpura, infections like tuberculosis etc...Tumors of kidney are one of the causes and even here these tumors can be benign and not cancerous.
Therefore it would be prudent to do other tests as well as imaging so that a cause can be found.
