Haematuria is the clinical term for blood in the urine, and it is important to see your GP if you find blood in your urine. It is often very easily treated but can sometimes be a symptom of a more serious condition. If left untreated, the symptoms could worsen.
Anyone can have haematuria, but it’s most common in older men. The most common cause of haematuria is a urinary tract infection (UTI) or Kidney stones. Other causes include bladder infection or cancer.
Treatment will depend on the underlying cause but is most often treated with medication.
