Blood in Urine (Part 4 of 6)

If you have blood in your urine, this could be caused by many things.  One common culprit could be kidney stones.  If you have symptoms of pain in your side or your back, your doctor may order an ultrasound to rule out kidney stones.  Many kidney stones will pass on their own through your urine.

If you have blood in your urine along with an urgency or a burning sensation to urinate, you may have a kidney or bladder infection.

If you have blood in your urine and do not have pain, this could be a more serious matter such as kidney or bladder cancer.

Do not hesitate to contact your doctor if you show signs of any of the above symptoms.  It’s always best to rule out something more serious.

Your Ford Chiropractic doctor can answer questions you may have.  However, if you feel you are in urgent need of medical help, please contact your doctor immediately or go to the Emergency Room.
