Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
There are many causes of blood in the urine.
Infection of the kidney or the urinary tract, prostate are the most common causes.
Stone in the urinary system may also cause blood with the urine.
Your enlarged prostate can be a cause.
Among other causes are clotting disorder, growth of prostate, urinary system, hypertension, diabetes, strenuous exercise etc.
As you have burning urine, infection is more likely.
You need to get an examination by doctor & do investigation like urine test, ultrasound etc. to find out the exact cause.
Till you see doctor try to take adequate fluid to have good urine output.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
