It sounds like some simple custom formatting could help you here.
Head to the Relationship view in Power BI and select your measure.
In the Properties pane, select 'Custom' from the Format dropdown. Then, in the Custom Format section, enter this: #,0.00;#,0.00
This will format negative numbers in the same way as positive numbers (i.e. without the preceeding '-' sign) but crucially, will not effect your calculations.
You can change the custom format string to suit your needs.
