Do you have a history of smoking?
Did they do a biopsy of this area? What did it show?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I used to smoke but stopped 4 years ago.
No they did not do a biopsy
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 2 years ago.
This hyperemia can either be due to infection or it could be possibly tumor. You would need to have a biopsy done of this area to figure out exactly what this is. We need to discuss this with urologist. Hope this helps

1. Does hyperemia in the bladder kind of rule out kidney malfunction in the haematuria diagnosis?
2. Is there any relationship between smoking and hyperemia or haematuria?
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 2 years ago.
No, hyperemia the water does not rule out kidney is the cause of the bleeding. You can have at the same time as well.
Yes, smoking can lead to bladder cancer which can cause hyperemia.
