When You See Blood, Don’t Ignore It
Seeing blood in your urine can be scary when you see it. Hematuria has many causes, so the time to seek medical attention is the first time it happens. Don’t ignore even a small amount of blood. It could be something quite minor—or not.

Frequently Asked Questions
For gross hematuria, your urine will look red, pink, or brown in color. If you have microscopic hematuria, it won’t be visible to the naked eye. However, your primary care physician might see it under a microscope as part of other tests.
The most frequent cause of blood in the urine is a urinary tract infection (UTI), such as pyelonephritis (kidney infection, and cystitis (bladder infection).
Other causes can include:
- Benign tumors
- Kidney stones
- Polycistic kidney disease
- Vigorous exercise/sexual activity
Though the condition causing the hematuria may be painful—such as kidney stones—the presence of blood in your urine is itself not painful.
