Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Blood in urine 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 60 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
-Ultrasound
-PSA test

The most common cause at your age of 67 years is benign pro static hyperplasia (BPH; enlarged prostate).But the exact diagnosis can only be made after physical examination & tests.

There is nothing serious or dangerous about this.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor to have the tests & examination done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.
Hope this helped
