Hi

Thanks

I can understand your concern.

Frank haematuria is an important symptom.

You do need some tests - a physical exam , urine analysis ,blood test of kidney function, CT or ultrasound of your renal tract and a cystoscopy ( exam of the interior of your bladder).

Possible causes - infection , stones , tumor , kidney disease although quite often no cause can be found.
