Dear customer

Thank you for coming back online.

The symptoms you have described of having blood in my urine with a burning sensation along with some blood clots at the end of urinating since last night is suggestive of most likely to be due to urinary tract infection(UTI) 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.

This is not a serious or dangerous condition.Following tests are required:

-Digital rectal examination (DRE),

-Urinalysis
-Urine culture & sensitivity test
-Kidney x-ray

The most common cause at your age is benign pro static hyperplasia (BPH; enlarged prostate).But the exact diagnosis can only be made after physical examination & tests.So I advice you to 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.Antibiotics may be prescribed if the UTI is confirmed.

Thank you.

Hope this helped.

Dear customer

Thank you for replying back.

Yes,urinary tract infection(UTI) or its the prostate gland disease that seems to be the most probable cause of your symptoms.

At your age BHP is more common.BHP is Benign prostatic hyperplasia."Benign" means the enlargement isn't caused by cancer or infection. "Hyperplasia" means enlargement.
With age, the prosate gland may begin to grow.The growth may eventually cause problems with urination, because the gland pinches off the urethra as it increases its size.

You need to make an appointment with your urologist for the above described tests so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

If you still have any questions,please let me know..I am happy to address your follow-up questions.

Thank you.

God bless you & take care.

Kind Regards
