|Blood in the urine
There are a number of causes for hematuria (hee-ma-TOUR-ree-uh), or blood in the urine. It may be a result of chronic kidney inflammation; an infection of the urethra, bladder, prostate gland, or kidney; stones in the bladder or kidneys; or even cancer of the bladder, kidneys, or prostate.
|Kidney and urinary tract infections
The body is equipped with a filtering system for disposing of liquid wastes. It's called the urinary tract. In women especially, this system is subject to invading bacteria, which can get inside the urinary tract and multiply, resulting in infection and discomfort.
