Urine (Definition)

Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

Infection or tumor: The most likely reason is infection of the kidney...Your doctor will check the urine and prescribe antibiotics. A less likely reason is a tumor in the kidney or nearby. This may need a urologists help. It could still be a kidney stone that was not seen on the ct, which also needs a urologists help.

Right flank pain with blood in urine cat scan?

Right flank pain with blood in urine cat scan?

Yes: If you have right flank pain and you have blood in the urine- you should have some evaluation done. In addition to the urine and blood test, a ct scan of the pelvic is one of the tests that you should have- to find out the explanation of your symptoms. There are different things that can give you symptoms like that including infection, kidney stones, mass etc.

Flank pain, both sides. Scans show small cysts on each. No burning or blood in urine & I'm a bit of a couch potato. More likely muscular or mental?

Pain: In patients without signs of urolithiasis, or signs of kidney infection, a likely cause of bilateral back and flank pain would be of musculoskeletal origin. Renal cysts generally do not cause pain unless they become very large.

Kidney stone?: Blood in the urine is never normal until proven to be otherwise. See a doctor now, and hope this clears up soon.

I have only 1 kidney which is enlarged w/ recent flank pain & blood in urine. Kidney failure runs in family. What do you think this is & how serious?

I have only 1 kidney which is enlarged w/ recent flank pain & blood in urine. Kidney failure runs in family. What do you think this is & how serious?

See doctor: Should consult physician. Hematuria and flank pain can be from stones, infection, and tumor. Various blood tests and imaging tests may have to be performed. Having only one kidney, the function of this kidney needs to be preserved.

Months of left side/flank pain & 2 neg cts. Then sudden blood in urine/clots, & bladder spasms. Diangosis pyelonephritis. Can this explain pain for months?

Partially: Very possible that a low grade infection caused the initial symptoms, then became full blown pyelonephritis, which requires initial IV antibiotics and long term treatment (at lest 3-4 weeks). Then need urologic evaluation to look for anatomic abnormalities for stones, masses, etc. That may be contributing.

I have bladder/ flank pain with occult blood in urine and something that feels like round ligament pain (not preg). Is this a gyn or urology issue?

Could be stone: It is possible that you have a stone that is passing as this can cause blood in urine and pain in flank and bladder regions. Best to see a urologist to check urine also to rule out infection and potentially imaging to rule out kidney stones or other urinary causes for pain.

Have pain every time I urinate, test negative for infections. I have UTI symptoms, flank pain, history of kidney stones but no blood in urine, help?!

May still be a UTI: Usually, pain on urination (dysuria) is a symptom of a UTI from which the offending bacteria can be grown from the urine. Less commonly dysuria can occur from the irritation of passing a kidney stone alone (i.e. Not a uti). In other situations, the laboratory can't isolate the microbe because it's too difficult to grow in culture (e.g. Chlamydia)- in that case, you may still actually have a uti.

See a urologist.: For now, I would not discontinue the medication as prescribed, as there might be other information that indicates infection. Hopefully a urine culture was sent, which will confirm the diagnosis. Blood in the urinary tract should be evaluated, however, and I recommend seeing a urologist who can perform a full evaluation with history, physical exam, and urine testing.

Have uti and blood in urine since Wednesday evening still having blood in urine. On amoxacillin since Friday. Lower back/side pain, loss of appetite?

Have uti and blood in urine since Wednesday evening still having blood in urine. On amoxacillin since Friday. Lower back/side pain, loss of appetite?

MaybeTimeForAChange: Call your doctor back and say the amox ain't workin'-- and hopefully you'll get changed to another antibiotic--amox ain't the best choice for the urine, unless they had a special reason for it--it's Sunday so you could probably wait to talk with them tomorrow-but-if you spike a fever or the pain worsens or you get sick to your stomach-go to an Urgent Care for further evaluation and treatment

Kidney stones: The stones are likely causing damage to the kidneys or urinary tract, resulting in blood in the urine. If you were discharged from the hospital with an outpatient f/u with urology, likely the stones are not causing any significant obstruction. See the urologist on consultation.

Flank pain back & abdomen, nausea, diarrhea, chills, temp 99.8, no appetite, positive Murphy's, blood in urine, elevated liver enzymes, neg. Ultrasoun?

Here are some. ..: Your current scenario needs timely professional attention, care, and Rx disregarding availability of healthcare. So, collect & bring the info on the onset, degree, duration, interval, evolution, and progress of all the symptoms over time to Doc for analysis + physicals + possible tests such as CT of abdomen so to deduce possible Dx for proposing reasonable Rx/care. Don't wait. Best wish. ..
