Hematuria is the medical term for blood in the urine and is a common symptom of many urological conditions. While hematuria may be caused by benign activities, such as strenuous exercise or taking aspirin, it is important to contact a doctor if you are experiencing this condition. This condition should never be disregarded. Some causes of hematuria are: urinary tract infections, kidney infections, bladder or kidney stones, enlarged prostate, kidney disease, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, recent surgery, trauma or inherited diseases such as sickle cell anemia and Alport syndrome. Treatment for hematuria depends on the determined cause.
