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, but the evaluation needs to be done to be sure.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
