Hi there, I am away on holiday at the moment isolating on a yacht. Two days ago suddenly had blood in my urine once only. The last few nights I went to the lol many times. Yes I do need see my GP the issue I have is timeings. Do  break short and go home ASAP this will take four days. Or find a local GP not good in covid times. Or wait it for two weeks and see my go on return. The question is two weeks and timing critical?

A one off MAY not be significant but, as you already know needs to be investigated. See

Are you in UK? If so could you call your GP on Monday and ask for an urgent phone consultation to get their advice?

It is a huge stretch to jump to concerns about prostate cancer from one episode. Most likely a urinary tract infection so best to drink lots of fluids and see if you can get an appointment with a local doctor for a dip test and possible antibiotics.
