Well,: In medicine, blood in urine is the presence of red blood cells in the urine, ranging from trace blood to gross blood in urine. It may be benign, or it can be a sign that there is a kidney stone or a tumor in the urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, prostate, and urethra). If white blood cells are found in addition to red blood cells, then it is a signal of urinary tract infection.
