I have no hypertension or diabetes.
Thank you again.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The blood only came out at the very end of the urination.
Urologist: Dr. Tharun, Urologist replied 3 years ago

Hi

Blood at the end of the urination can be due to urinary infection , bladder stone or growth in the bladder/ kidneys.

Infection usually has pain and burning while passing urine. Also there would be fever in some cases. Bladder stone will also cause pain at the end of the urination. Bladder growths are generally painless but seen mostly in smokers. Enlargement of the prostate can also cause bleeding in the urine. This is common in males after the age of 50 yrs. Bleeding from the prostate can be controlled with medications.

These conditions has to be confirmed by doing an ultrasound or CT scan of the abdomen. You should see your doctor who can order the appropriate tests.

Drink plenty of water and cranberry juice which are protective in such cases.

I have no insurance. I have no job and can not afford these test. These conditions are not life threatening are they?I have no fever. I have no burning.I am afraid to go to the bathroom. Should I drink a lot of cranberry and just use the bathroom and report back?
Urologist: Dr. Tharun, Urologist replied 3 years ago

Blood in urine has to be checked by a doctor. You should be drinking plenty of water and cranberry juice as they are protective. See your doctor at a convenient time later if the blood disappears. If it persists see a doctor as soon as possible. You can go to government run walk in clinics which would help you.

Thank you Doctor. I urinated about an hour ago and it was all red to pink. I just urinated 5 minutes ago and it was pink to dark yellow. Seems like things are going in the right direction. Thanks again.
