Answer
Hi, pankaj,

If the urine was negative for red bloods cells, then you aren't having blood in the urine.  Blood in the urine is easily proven and tested for in your doctors office.  If the urine is pink, I would think of other causes, such as beeturia (Google it), or other pigments from foods.  Cancer of the bladder is exceedingly rare in someone of your age and if there was blood, the test would easily identify it.  

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
