Expert:  Dr Josh replied 9 months ago.

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

These symptoms can occur due to various reasons. The most common causes are -
-Kidney and bladder stones,
-Urinary tract infection,
-STD.

As he is having flank pain with blood in urine, this is most likely indicative of Kidney stone.
He need to undergo few tests for diagnosis-
-Urine test,
-X-ray pelvis,
-Ultrasound of lower abdomen.
For the time, he should take plenty of fluids and drink Cranberry juice. He can take Tylenol for pain.
He should see doctor urgently for checkup and treatment. He will be advised medications, after tests and clinical evaluation. In case he is repeatedly having blood in urine, then please don't delay and see doctor immediately in ER. Otherwise you can get it checked by tomorrow.

I hope this helps.
