Mgt: A workup for the underlying cause can include imaging. A mass should be excluded as a cause. The anemia may be related to the event, and compared to prior values.

What is happening to the prostate when the patient have gross hematuria? Hpb patient.

What is happening to the prostate when the patient have gross hematuria? Hpb patient.

Here are some. ..: Gross hematuria at 89, no matter what, should be thoroughly evaluated at least once with adequate imaging studies followed with cystoscopy. For imaging, US is not enough and CT.IVP is preferred if renal function is suitable. If not, US or CT without contrast can be supplemented with retrograde pyelogram - a special x-ray under fluoroscopy to see image of ureters and the hollow parts of kidneys.

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.

Gross hematuria for 6hrs. H/O bilat mild HDN & dysentery 1month ago. C/S neg. Usg ok. Creatinine 0.5. no pain or fever. Why doc doesn't do cystoscopy?

Not Routine: At age 5 yrs, cystoscopy not routinely done to evaluate hematuria. Would usually be evaluated with Ultrasound scan of kidneys and bladder.

Is regular RBC 1 p/micro L in several urinalyses sign of microhematuria in a hdn patient who once had gross hematuria some days ago?

No: A few red cells are normal. Keep looking for the explanation for the previous episode. Sometimes "gross hematuria" isn't hematuria at all -- it can be anything from myoglobinuria to someone who doesn't metabolize the red pigment in beets in the diet.

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.
