In brief: 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. If you are unable to get in to see a urologist, you should consider going to an E.R. Btw, ultrasound is terrible at diagnosing kidney stones. You need a ct-urogram and cystoscopy.

Best test for stones is a non contrast ct; not a urogram. Contrast obscures stones
