I had gross hematuria this morning; bright red blood with some clots. By the time I went to the urgent care, hematuria was only microscopic. No infection was found. I was never very susceptible to urinary tract infections anyway. I had maybe two in my life and the last one was over 15 years ago. No Pain, no other symptoms. The doctor wants me to have a CT scan to check for kidney stones, but wouldn't I be in pain if that was the cause! Guess I'll have the scan and find out what's going on.

I take 2 full strength daily aspirin to prevent recurrence of stage IV cancer for 7 1/2 years now. Recently I have had pale pink urine on 4 occasions. The doctor believes the aspirin is the cause but tests are ordered.

For a year I've been having urological issues. After cystoscopy, blood work and rectal exams and even a CT scan and PSA test, I was told no cancer. I've been having infections on and off the last few months. A few days ago I did not go to the bathroom for a few hours, went to urinate and I passed urine brown with blood. Tomorrow, I am getting my annual blood and urine work done. I hope for the best.

I have been having blood in urine for years and urinary tract infections. But three weeks ago I had to urinate every thirty minutes at night. After five miserable painful days I finally was given Keflex. I got better but now I have pain in left kidney and was up all night again. I think it is much more than urinary tract infection. I am seeing the urologist and having ultrasound soon. Really tired of feeling awful.

I am 80 so as one can imagine have an enlarged prostate. Six days ago in the morning I had bright red blood in my urine; none since then. I am waiting to see if it happens again.

I have fairly heavy fresh blood from penis, even when not urinating. I also have swelling in my legs.

My husband is 73. When he urinates he bleeds once in a while. He just had a urine test 1 week ago, everything was fine, and no urinary tract infection. I am not sure what causes this bleeding, this is the third time he had since last month. I wonder if I should take him to the doctor.

I have had blood in my urine for almost a week. Urine looks like fruit punch most of the time. Blood work was fine, except creatinine was 4 times higher than normal. I am waiting for specialized urine tests. I also have blood in my stool. Prostate is ok. No symptoms, no pain in back, blood pressure is 110/78, and no pain when urinating. Gastrointestinal specialist scheduled in a week, no urologist scheduled yet.
