HYPOTHETICAL DOCTOR VISIT
Following is a situation faced by primary care physicians and gynecologists seeing female patients with blood in their urine
A patient presents with hematuria (blood in the urine). The gynecologist or primary care physician performs a standard gynecological workup that indicates the patient’s hematuria is not attributable to infection.
Noting that the patient has risk factors for bladder cancer, the gynecologist or primary care physician sends the patient’s urine sample to a service laboratory to perform a molecular test that can be used as an aid in the early detection of bladder cancer.
*This is one diagnostic option.
The molecular test result comes back typically within 72 hours, providing answers the gynecologist or primary care physician can use to support the patient’s health care management.
