Went to ER for severe lower right ab pain and back pain. Dr said i had kidney stone and hematuria. Did urine and blood tests only but no cat scan, why?

See answer: Though symptoms and u/a may be suggestive, one cannot reliably make the diagnosis of a kidney stone without some type of an imaging study (kub, ultrasound, ct) with a non-contrast ct scan being the most accurate and reliable imaging study to determine the presence, location, and size approximation of a stone as well as to potentially rule out other causes of pain and hematuria. ...Read more

Why do I have hematuria in the past 4 months? Small to moderate in each urine analysis.  Doctors are brushing it off but I want to know what or why?

Don't brush: You need to have this checked out. It may be nothing but if there is some blood make sure it is not during your period. If they brush you off, see a urologist to be complete and you need to suggest a cat scan of the kidneys, ureter and bladder to have a complete workup. also need a bladder scope. Make sure it is all negative. ...Read more

Can blood in semen be due to bloody urine? Had hematuria few months ago( got complete evaluation). 
Now, bloody semen. could it mean theres hematuria?

Unlikely: It's unlikely for the blood in your semen to be due to hematuria unless you also urinated blood just before ejaculation Usually blood in the semen comes from the epididymis/prostate/urethra and not the bladder although since urine and semen both pass through the urethra it is not impossible for a little blood from the bladder to find it's way in the semen. I would see your Dr for a urinalysis. ...Read more

If not, see a urologist. ...Read more
