Hematuria can be caused by kidney stones, kidney infections, urinary tract infections, an enlarged prostate, cancer, certain medications, and ...Read more

Complex: Depends on age and gender and medical history and if blood is visible. Seeing a urologist for older folks is the place to start. Does the person smoke? The urologist may ask for a CT scan and if their workup is negative, may need to see a kidney doc. Sometimes this is a frustrating condition, but most often cause can be found. Talk to your MD and get to see a urologist. ...Read more

Just urinated and had a significant color issue. It was almost purple in color. I have no idea why but definitely showing symptoms of gross hematuria?

Cystitis: Assuming you are not using pyridium (over the counter AZO), such coloration does likely indicate hematuria.

At age 35, it is most likely due to a bladder infection (cystitis). Other causes are possible. A urinalysis at a local clinic would be a good start. ...Read more

1 occasion of gross hematuria, no symptoms, urinalysis came back negative. Age 23. Should I push for further investigation? What could be cause?

1 occasion of gross hematuria, no symptoms, urinalysis came back negative. Age 23. Should I push for further investigation? What could be cause?

Might not be urine: I've seen many cases of women in the emergency department mistake blood in the urine with vaginal bleeding. It can be subtle. Medications like Macrobid and pyridum also commonly change the color of urine and can be confused for blood. Renal and bladder stones can also cause bleeding but usually cause pain. You might need further tests if it reccurs. ...Read more

If I had hematuria due to kidney stone symptoms, how long after I feel a bit better should I recheck my urine to see if hematuria is gone? Thank you.

If I had hematuria due to kidney stone symptoms, how long after I feel a bit better should I recheck my urine to see if hematuria is gone? Thank you.

Difficult Question: If you have any remaining sludge or irritation the blood not seen by the human eye that shows on a dip test can stick around for a while and be normal. If a person needed a urologist to use a tool to grab the stone or a stent place the same is true then too. If you don't see blood and are pain free and following the diet your dr gave you you are ok until follow up with your doc. ...Read more

25 y.O. Female routine pap smear found microscopic hematuria. No pain, no symptoms, and nurse says no infection. What could be the cause?

Two different source: Microscopic hematuria describes that blood was found in the urine from the bladder. A routine pap smear tests the cervical cells found inside the vagina. The test and the results seem to be from two different sources. You should call your nurse and ask her to clarify the findings as well as the next step. ...Read more

When I am dehydrated I have severe burning and UTI symptoms as soon as I am hydrated it resolves. Could my chronic hematuria cause this pain?

Here are some. ..: Personal experience and commonsense can do so much for our life like what you described. Of no doubt, the effect of changing concentration and pH of urine may reach the personal threshold of sensation in the lining mucosa of bladder & urethra. So, clinically, it is okay as long as having stable renal function on tests and no UTI. Clinically, chronic hematuria is probably not related with the pain ...Read more

No: Hydronephrosis is common during pregnancy, more on the right than left. Could also be due to a kidney stone if there is associated pain. If you have continued to take aleve (naproxen) or another pain medication, you could have bleeding from your kidney from that. Sometimes a clot in the ureter tube could cause pain and hydronephrosis as well. ...Read more

Blood in urine: Blood in urine is called hematuria. If you can see it, it is macroscopic hematuria meaning larger amount of blood than if u had microscopic hematuria.
