What is Hematuria?
Hematuria is blood in the urine. The blood might be visible to the naked eye (“gross hematuria”) or only detected through lab tests (“microscopic hematuria”). There are many reasons why a person could be experiencing blood in their urine, including infections (such as urinary tract infections), kidney stones, kidney disease, cancers, and blood disorders (and this isn’t an exhaustive list).
If you see blood in your urine, it’s important to see a doctor right away for an accurate diagnosis. Our board-certified urologists can get you the answers you’re looking for and provide guidance regarding treatment. You’re not alone. Let us help.
