Inflammatory processes in the urogenital system accompanied by disturbed blood circulation. Such inflammation is often caused by an infection, when bacteria enter the bladder or prostate gland, and start multiplying there.
Kidney or bladder stones. They can start moving along the ureter and traumatize it, thus causing blood in the urine. The symptoms are unmistakable – they cause renal colic characterized by excruciating pain.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia. The prostate tissue starts growing, the gland becomes enlarged and gradually compresses the urethra causing urinary problems, such as difficulty urinating, pain during urination, hematuria, etc. The same symptoms can be associated with prostatitis.
Cancer of the prostate gland, bladder or kidney. Visible blood in the urine can be a symptom of advanced cancer. Such cancer, unfortunately, do not have any symptoms in the early stages.man at the doctor
