Blood in pee

You may notice a small or large amount of blood when you pee – this is called haematuria and can be harmless but also could be a sign of an underlying condition.


A urine test and blood tests are usually required to rule out infection and ensure that the kidney function is normal. The kidneys are examined with ultrasound and CT scans if required and a flexible camera is used to examine the bladder under a local anaesthetic (called a flexible cystoscopy). These tests will usually demonstrate the cause of the bleeding and your treatment options will be discussed with you after these tests. Occasionally, further tests are required.


Often the all clear is given and no long term follow up is needed, but if a serious condition is diagnosed then keyhole surgery for kidney and bladder problems can be offered and laser vaporisation of kidney stones can be performed if required.
