Penis Pain, Sores, Discharge or Lumps

The medical term for blood in the urine is hematuria. Urine that contains blood can appear pink, red, maroon, or even have a dark smoky color that looks like cola. You may or may not see blood clots, which can look like small pieces of tissues or coffee grounds. Rarely, red urine may be caused by certain foods or medicine. Your doctor will want to test a sample of your urine to confirm that its red color is caused by blood.

Blood in the urine may be caused by urinary tract infections, kidney stones  and prostate problems. Less commonly, blood in the urine can signal a more serious problem in the kidney, bladder or prostate gland, such as a tumor or cancer.

Contact your doctor. Blood in the urine requires medical evaluation.
