Why does my urine look rusty?

Possibly hematuria: Altered blood, or blood from kidney will acquire a rusty color by time it reaches the bladder ; thus make urine look rusty. You need to get a urinalysis to rule out blood in your urine because of risk of kidney tumor. Kidney cancers found early are nearly all curable so please get your urine tested asap.

This is good advice -- please get checked. Sometimes the slight rusty tinge is nothing more than uric acid crystals.
