Bleeding: Hematuria is blood in the urine. It is caused from bleeding somewhere in the genitourinary (gu) tract. That could be in the kidneys (eg kidney cancer or a kidney stone), in the ureters (cancer or stone), bladder (cancer, infection), prostate, or urethra. A urologist can help track down the source and determine what to do.
