Painful or Frequent Urination in Men

A number of different urinary conditions can make blood appear in the urine. (The medical name for blood in the urine is hematuria). In young men, kidney stones are a common cause. In older men kidney stones are also common, but prostate problems and bladder tumors become more of a concern.

Contact your doctor. Blood in the urine deserves a medical evaluation. If you are passing large blood clots, contact your doctor immediately, since these blood clots can block the bladder.
