Occasional gross hematuria

I'm 38 and in good health, and I just had my first case of gross hematuria in over a year. It seems to happen once a year or so, and the last 2-3 times (as in today) it's happened after really strenuous exercise/physical labor. Last year I had a cystoscopy and everything checked out totally clean. I've had CT scans on all the plumbing and everything's checked out. My doc sometimes gives me some Pyridium for some minor discomfort, but everything else has been unremarkable. Should I just put up with it, drink as much water as I can, and not worry about it?

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include GU infections, inflammations, calculi, erosions/ trauma/ injuries, growths/ masses, bleeding disorders etc. The lesion could be present either in lower or upper GU tract. I would suggest getting this reviewed by your treating urologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
