How are you? Hematuria is the presence of blood in the urine. This is a sign that something is causing bleeding in the genitourinary tract: the kidneys, ureters,  the bladder, or the urethra. The most common causes include the following: kidney stones and bladder stones, kidney disease, medications, trauma  to the kidneys, tumors, urinary tract blockages or viral infections of the urinary tract and sexually transmitted diseases.

Treatment ranges from antibiotic therapy to surgery, depending on the underlying cause of hematuria. It is best to see your doctor for proper evaluation and some tests to determine the cause. Take care and keep us posted.
