Advice as not yet diagnosed

I recently started having high amounts of blood in my urine, at first no infection was detectable but then they found a trace of and put me on antibiotics, I was having really severe lower back pain and could barely walk so went to the ER on Sunday, the last day of my antibiotics. They did a CT scan and no tumours were visible in my bladder or anywhere else, just a tiny cyst on my liver. All my bloodwork and urine came back perfect, the pain was assigned to osteoarthritis in my back and I kept an appointment with my doctor today for more tests, even though Sunday's had been perfect and made an appointment for my back. Never thought much more of it until my tests came back this afternoon as abnormal amount of red blood cells and I was to see a urologist ASAP. I have been suffering extreme fatigue and "throbbing dull pain" below my intestines for months but put it down to stress. I do not have any problem when I go to the bathroom, not an unusually frequent urge to go but have a sensation on the lower left of what I can only describe as what feels like a cold spot. I sometimes get swelling behind my knees but thought this was connected to being on my feet most of the day.
I do not know what to expect from a Urologist, I have never even had a UTI before.
I hope it is not rude of me to post this here but bladder cancer has been mentioned more than once in the last 10 days and I feel more than a little overwhelmed with all the information on the web.
Thank you for your time.
