Haematuria

Unnatural spotting of blood in urine is known as Haematuria. The RBCs in urine in men and during non-menstrual period in women is caused by several factors. The presence of 10 or more RBCs per high-power field is abnormal. The causes of haematuria are broad, ranging from urinary tract infection to kidney stones to bladder cancer. Visible or gross haematuria causes brown or red discoloration of the urine that is visible to the naked eye. It can be painful or painless. The most worrisome cause of painless, visible blood in the urine is kidney or bladder cancer, especially in a person with risk factors such as male sex, age over 35, history of smoking, family history of a malignancy, chronic bladder inflammation, and occupational exposures (to aromatic amines and aniline dyes)
