Thanks for getting back.

To answer your questions

1. It is unlikely that you have cancer given your age.

2. Yes, cancer cells may be seen in the urine, but sometimes a biopsy of the tumor (if any) may be needed

3. There are many other reasons for blood in urine including infections stones inflammation auto-immune conditions that need to be ruled out ...

I understand that you are scared and I believe that further tests will help decide the diagnosis and best course of treatment.

Cancer is less likely at the present point of time ...

Please discuss with your doctor for more details ...

Hope this helps :)
