I guess that's probably true, but better safe than sorry..
Over the last several years I've had a few "bladder infections". Twice treated with antibiotics, and sometimes self treated with cranburry juice successfully.  This time the cranberry didn't work, saw the doc, antibiotics again for the third time, and had to give a sample , and this time red blood cells found, twice, a week apart.  That's when I got refered to urology.
I know the NHS has a few problems, but this has all been sorted in a month and can only sincerely thank them for the "service" I have received in such a timely manner. 
Cheers, Trev.

After a month of worrying my self sick after the doc finding blood in my urine, got the ok today after a shuftyscope up the whatsit and an ultrasound of bladder and kidneys.. Back in the shed tomorrow, yeehaa!
Glad you are all clear. I had the same inspections last year with "nowt to worry about" results. Apparently such traces are common once you get to around 50 but initial tests are more accurate and GPs are becoming uber cautious and referring "just in case"
If it looks right and it works then I'm happy.

I got referred to the urologist who decided to look inside. I thought they would use a fibre optic camera, but I think they used a bit of 1/2Ē gas pipe with a threaded end. Fortunately all OK, but they still donít know why I keep getting infections. Now on a prophylactic dose of antibiotics l

It would appear that the tools used are directly proportional to the hole being investigated - the bigger the hole, the bigger the instrument, (and I know  :'().  But please do not let that put you off gents, it's not that bad really..................honest.  :)

Glad things are ok with you Malc.

I'm in the same boat as you in not knowing why it keeps happening.

Yes, they do like to give you an audience. I had a nurse sitting by my head and the consultant and two students at the business end. The consultant insisted on showing me the pictures. He said the camera was in what he called the J manoeuvre, where it bends around so you can see where it comes in. I asked him to do me a favour and straighten it out before he pulled it out. He didnít even smile.

Before my wife retrained as a psychiatric nurse, she was a general nurse. She spent quite a long time working in an endoscopy unit. A couple of years ago she was in a team meeting discussing psychiatric patients and one, who also had physical problems, had been referred for ERCP. The whole team looked blank. They looked completely amazed when she just trotted out, without hesitation, "Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography." I can't even say it!

Just spent a very nice afternoon at the Bag Laddies club running day I  ran my class 58 on my  coal train and my Wrexham and Shropshire set and also cheated a bit and gave my Chiltern 68 a run with the same set of coaches .
These guys really are a friendly bunch they allways make me so welcome.
If you are looking for a club and you live near Reading you need to get in touch with them  one of the best clubs I've known .
Hailstone even picks me up and brings me home as I dont have my own car now.
A BIG THANKYOU TO ALL THE MEMBERS ESPECIALLY HAILSTONE.

Bob,
I can assure you there is nothing to it. I have had a urology check up every year for 5 years since I was diagnosed with the big C -  bladder tumours. Thankfully go them in time and I had the all clear. As has been suggested, no one should baulk at going to the docs if they see any sort of blood when passing.  My wife, an ex nurse, persuaded me to go and as far as I am concerned, it saved my life.
Next month will be my 6th and final checkup before they discharge me.
She who must be obeyed says I am spending too much time on this forum. I love her dearly but what does she know?

Good news Delboy. I have to repeat your good advice about going to the Doc' - although I would add, go if anything is not right, not just blood in the urine. In my case. it took over three years and 3 biopsies, (amongst other things  :-[), but the Doc's are just running a 'watching brief' now, along with the daily tablet.

I agree completely with dannyboy.
