Hematuria: While symptomless blood in the urine is never normal, it is somewhat common. Because blood in the urine is the only sign or symptom of some fairly serious problems, it is recommended that you have an initial workup at least.

Hematuria: Blood in the urine is most commonly an infection. But, it can also represent kidney stones and cancer--of either the kidney or the bladder.
