In brief: Diagnosis First

It depends where it is coming from. It may be from the filtering units, kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate, or urethra.
The presence of other factors in the urine, symptoms, and patient's age all will suggest a likely source, and order of investigations to your doctor.

In brief: Blood/urine =inflamm

It may be due to infection, cancer, trauma, or stone of passageways.
Also, glomerulonephritis ( filtering unit diseases) are possible. Need a doctor to differentiate.
