I am 62 year old woman and went for a well- woman check recently. Everything went fine until the nurse tested my water sample and detected non-visible blood and protein. Samples have been sent off for lab analysis. I have no other symtoms of concern.
I am very worried about this as I have read in patient leaflets that anyone over 60 who has blood in the urine should be referred to a specialist. I have to wait a few stressful days for the results to come back. I am worried that I may have bladder cancer as a symptom checker has shown that bladder cancer is one common reason for non-visible blood in urine.
Could anyone kindly advise me should I have been give a specialist referral due to my age as well as having my urine sample sent for analysis?
