Blood in the urine (hematuria) should be taken very seriously. Infections and tumors of the urinary tract can cause hematuria. Blood and urine analyses and abdominal ultrasound scan can provide more information about your health condition. A cystoscopy can be performed later, if necessary. You can go to your doctor to request these diagnostics.
