Blood in the urine can be caused by infections, inflammation, stones or growths anywhere in the urethra, bladder or kidneys. This must be evaluated by a urologist to rule out a growth as the source. The evaluation includes a urinalysis, a urine culture, a urine cell test called a cytology, as well as a Ct scan of the kidneys ( or a sonogram) and a cystoscopy, where the urologist looks in the bladder. Most likely not cancerous and likely due to the stone, but the evaluation needs to be done to be sure.
