Twenty-seven year old male, single episode of blod spot on underwear

Patient : Hi. I'm a 27 year old make with an unremarkable past medical history. A few months ago after a night of heavy drinking I awoke to find a small spot of blood on my underwear next to the tip of my penis. I do not drink regularly besides on this occasion. I had no other symptoms and I was not and am not currently taking any regular medication. This has not happened again or I have not noticed it again. I smoked socially from age 19-22 probably amounting to twenty cigarettes per week. I'm very anxious as I'm now a medical student and have been reading about hematuria and bladder cancer. Please can you help?
