Blood in urine one day (also in semen) few days later blood clots in urine. Er doc said may have ruptured blood vessel. No pain whatsoever, worried.

Possibly...: Could be a ruptured blood vessel, more likely in the prostate gland. Depending on your age and use of tobacco, if this recurs, it should be evaluated by a urologist (if over 35 y/o) or a nephrologist. Probably not serious if one time occurrence and no pain with urination or ejaculation. ...Read more

On my lab work, one test said "HEMOGLOBIN UR: 2+". Can you tell me what this indicates? I was on last day of period but didn't see blood in urine cup.

Probably OK: Positive urine dip stik for Hemoglobin is common. Particularly if you were stillon your period. This also occurs with NSAIDS and blood thinners being most common. Not to overlook serious problems, I will repeat the test on 2-3 weeks and be guided by results. In your case at 45 repeat urinalysis in 2-3 weeks is best advice. If the positive test persists, more complete evaluation is next. ...Read more

56 yr old female visible blood in urine. Avelox 14 days. Blood gone in 4 days. 2 weeks later visible blood. Avelox april 15 again + canesoral combi pack. Does antib stop blood if cancer? Scared.

56 yr old female visible blood in urine. Avelox 14 days. Blood gone in 4 days. 2 weeks later visible blood. Avelox april 15 again + canesoral combi pack. Does antib stop blood if cancer? Scared.

No, it would not: Antibiotics are not likely to cause bleeding from a cancer in the bladder to stop. Be sure to have your urine tested and cultured (this is the test that specifies the exact bacteria causing infection, as well as which antibiotics will be effective against it) each time you have urinary symptoms. If blood continues to appear in spite of appropriate antibiotic treatment, see a urologist. ...Read more

Cystoscopy needed!: One cannot determine the recurrent cause of your symptoms without a look see! A bladder stone with attendant infection could explain them but, there are multiple other possibilities to be considered. Repeat urinalysis and culture are also required at least 7 days beyond the last antibiotic dose.

My left testicle hurts for one week now after over musterbation. My left testicle feels warm (the weather is getting cold) but I don't have pain with erecttion or urination. I don't have blood in urine. Is it dangrues or I need rest?

Have pain right side under my ribs, radiates to the back. Comes and goes. Interupts my day life. Trace blood in urine. Hist stones dr say muscles skel?

Possible renal stone: Intermittent pain in the side, radiating to the back, and associated with blood in the urine, can be due to a urinary tract stone. This can be very uncomfortable. There are certainly other possible causes, but an x-ray to look for a stone would be worthwhile. A CT scan without contrast is the best way to find a small stone. ...Read more
