Blood in Urine: Causes

Blood in Urine: Causes
  • Urinary tract infections. These occur when bacteria enter your body through the urethra and multiply in your bladder. Symptoms can include a persistent urge to urinate, pain and burning with urination.
  • Kidney infections. These can occur when bacteria enter your kidneys from your bloodstream.
  • A bladder or kidney stone.  The stones are generally painless, so you probably won't know you have them unless they cause a blockage or are being passed.
  • Enlarged prostate. The prostate gland often enlarges as men approach middle age, partially blocking urine flow. Symptoms include difficulty urinating, persistent need to urinate.
  • Kidney disease. Microscopic urinary bleeding is a common symptom of glomerulonephritis, an inflammation of the kidneys' filtering system. Glomerulonephritis may be part of a systemic disease, such as diabetes, or it can occur on its own.
  • Cancer. Visible urinary bleeding may be a sign of advanced kidney, bladder or prostate cancer.
  • Inherited disorders. Sickle cell anemia — a hereditary defect of hemoglobin in red blood cells — causes blood in urine.
  • Kidney injury. A blow or other injury to your kidneys from an accident or contact sports can cause visible blood in your urine.
  • Medications. The anti-cancer drug cyclophosphamide and penicillin can cause urinary bleeding.
  • Strenuous exercise. It's rare for strenuous exercise to lead to gross hematuria, and the cause is unknown.
I will be talking on diagnosis and treatment options for hematuria in the upcoming blog. Stay connected.
