Yes: Cancer can grow from within the lining of the ureters, spread up and down the ureters to kidney pelvis and bladder and cause bloody urine.

Hematuria: Yes, but bloody urine (hematuria), can also be due to a myriad of less sinister causes. Regardless of the underlying cause, hematuria is something that you should immediately seek medical advice from your doctor about, so that a proper diagnosis can be established and treatment started.

Seek evaluation.: Blood in the urinary tract has many potential causes, and needs to be worked up. Injury to the kidney or bladder, tumors of the urinary tract, stones, infections are examples of causes. Dark bloody urine indicates a significant amount of blood is being passed into the urinary tract, which requires prompt workup and management.
