In brief: Not necessarily

Hematuria can be caused by tumors, infection, foreign bodies (i.
E bladder stones), trauma (including procedures) to name a few. It should be evaluated with a good history/physical exam, cystoscopy and an imaging study (usually a ct scan). Urine culture with sensitivity (before cysto) and urine cytology. Depending on findings other tests or procedures may be indicated.
