Thank you for being online.
The symptom you have described of having blood in urine/urinated blood is medically called as hematuria.
Often, bloody urine is from a problem in your kidneys or other parts of the urinary tract or its the prostate.Its most common causes are:benign pro static hyperplasia (BPH; enlarged prostate) in men over especially over 50 age,prostate infection or inflammation (prostities)kidney stones and bladder stones,infection of the bladder, kidney, or urethra.Other causes can be blood related disorders or certain medications can also cause this.
You need following tests:
-Urinalysis-Urine culture & sensitivity test
-Digital rectal examination
The most common cause at your age of 54 is benign pro static hyperplasia (BPH; enlarged prostate).With age, the prosate gland may begin to grow & cause such symptoms.This is not serious or dangerous condition & is not an emergency.It is treated with medications.
So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your urologist to have these tests done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.
Hope this helped.
