Hematuria: Blood in your urine is not normal, and there are tests to help diagnose possible causes, including a physical exam, urinalysis with reflex to culture, a ct urogram and even a possible cystocope to rule out serious causes of bleeding. Generally speaking, these three tests with the exam can view the urogenital system from the kidneys to the bladder/urethra to help find any causes. Best wishes.
