I am a 29 y/o white male. When I followed up in my last physical my doctor told me there were red blood cells in my urine, although not visible to the naked eye. He called this microscopic hematuria and ordered that I have two tests done: A CTUrogram and a cystoscopy. The purpose of these tests is to rule out problems like stones, cysts, polps, and even bladder cancer. I had the CTUrogram done and the results came back normal. I have yet to have to cystoscopy done as it sounds very scary. They essentially stick a tube up into your penis and extend it all the way back to look at the prostate and bladder with a mini-camera. EEK! Has anyone had these procedures and if so what were your experiences?
