Blood in urine: Kidney stones can cause plenty of problems and can cause some blood in the urine. But bright red blood in the urine is a possible sign of something worse, such as bladder cancer.

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. ...Read more

Where would kidney stone be if it causes blood in urine? I have 3 based on utlsnd in November. No pain at all. Urine bloody other times clear. 38y old
Absolutely: The very fact that the "stone" scraping along on the inner aspect of the ureter (the tube from the kidney to the bladder) causes pain also means that it can be abrasive enough to the inside of the ureter to cause bleeding as well. Indeed, bleeding is a very common occurrence during the passage of a kidney stone. ...Read more
