Now, again bloodin urine&semen. Testing needed? (age: 20)

Cause can be elusive and often self-limiting with good prognosis if all tests negative. Consider IgA nephropathy, hypercalciuria, posterior urethritis. ...Read more

M 82 saw dr for blood in urine. Given abiotic & schedule cystoscopy in 2 wks. Blood quantity has incrsd. Greatly. Go to ER or wait & call dr. Am?
Increased hematuria: You should have your mother go to the er. Passing a large amount of blood in her urine is not due to an uti. She is also on metropolol, which would lower her pulse rate, which could lower her BP more if she bleeds a lot. Take her to the er and have her hemoglobin and blood pressure checked if the amount of blood in her urine has increased, as you state, greatly. Good luck. ...Read more

I get hemorraghic cystitis when I get an uti. Had cytoscopy — red and inflamed. Dr. Also wants MRI of kidneys. Always have blood in urine. Clue why?
Other causes: When you had acute hemorrhagic cystitis it was documented by cystoscopy & you were symptomatic. But you say you "always"have blood in urine. Whether it is microscopic or visible to the eye it is still blood. This is why your doctor wants radiographic study because there are many causes of hematuria above the bladder which will not show at cystoscopy. Go ahead with doctor's advice. Good luck ...Read more
