What could blood in a person's urine be an indication of?

Report as

Hematuria, the medical term for blood in the urine, could indicate a number of problems. The most common cause of blood in the urine is from damage in the urinary tract. Physical damage in the urinary tract is likely from a kidney stone that has not been passed through the ureters. Kidney stones are normally harmless unless they grow to abnormally large sizes, blocking the flow of urine. The problem with kidney stones comes when they are passed through the ureters and into the bladder. A stone can barely fit through the ureters and is therefore very painful to void. Otherwise, a stone won't cause any long term problems.Other possible reasons for blood in the urine are urinary tract infections, kidney infections, tumors in the urinary tract, or kidney disease. Blood in the urine is the first sign that appears in all of these cases. Protein is often present in these diseases, as well. Unlike kidney stones, infections and diseases are more serious and will likely result in death if left untreated. Since urinary tract infections and kidney problems are harder to treat than many other conditions, early detection is vital.
