Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
Do you have a history of smoking? Did you see a urologist to do cystoscopy and a CT scan to work up the blood in the urine?
Blood in the urine can be an indication of a prostate infection, prostate cancer, kidney stones, or tumors of the kidneys, ureters, or bladder. This is why it is important to get in to see your urologist to have a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis done and cystoscopy (camera test of the bladder) to rule out the stones and cancerous causes. While the cancerous causes are not likely, they should not be missed and this is why this evaluation is very important. Hope this helps and please let me know if you have questions.
