DrTharun :

BLood in urine without pain is an indication for further tests like Ultrasound of the abdomen , and IVP to see for lesions in the urinary tract.Alternatively CT urography scan can be done to see for any lesions.

DrTharun :

If these tests come negative , a cystoscopy is advised to see for inside of the bladder.

Customer:

Quite a while. No weight loss or appetite loss. It isn't liquid blood but just small red specks and only sometimes. If it's not something you can diagnos I'll call my doctor and schedual a physical. Thank you
