Hi, I am a 51 year old female who was diagnosed over 12 years ago with hematuria(blood in urine detected by microscope). At the time it was detected I had all the tests done to check for bladder cancer and kidney problems, everything came up normal. I was told 5% of the population has hematuria and there are no found causes. Ok so moving forward with blood still showing up under a microscope I am now having symptome of low pelvic pain, feelimg like I have to urinate constantly, and a feeling of incomplete emptying of my bladder. I am scared to death because everything I am reading indicates bladder cancer. I have a strong faith in God but I can't seem to escape this overwhelming fear that I will hear those words "you have cancer". I am scheduled to see a uroligist next Friday and in the meantime I feel as though a panic attack will set in any minute and I am going to die. Does anyone know are these symptome always a diagnosis of cancer or can other conditions or diseases cause these same symptoms? The waiting is killing me and I just have a bad feeling about this. Can anyone offer me some guidance or hope?
