Dear Lybrateuser, - Get your urine RE/ME & culture done to rule out a urinary tract infection or prostrate infection - consult a urologist.
Dear lybrate-user ji, Thanks for A2A Blood in urine is a warning sign for people with prostate hypertrophy with symptoms please consult a urologist for evaluation and management. U can get a serum PSA and USG abdomen with PVR prior to that for ease of opinion.
First of all the cause needs to be known for which you need to go for examination like urine routine and USG KUB. And revert back with the reports for the start up of the treatment. CAUSES OF HEMATURIA (blood in urine) - Bladder or kidney stones. Certain kidney diseases, such as inflammation in the filtering system of the kidneys (glomerulonephritis) Enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia) or prostate cancer. Inherited diseases such as sickle cell anemia and cystic kidney disease, etc and more causes. So we need to diagnose the cause first. For more queries, contact us.
