The Cause Of Hematuria That Doesn’t Go Away?
Night. I want to ask, my husband has been urinating blood for a long time but not regularly. Incidentally there is another this month. Already to the doctor, according to the diagnosis he said hematuria. Actually what causes hematuria itself?
Hi Septia29 .. Thanks for the question given.
Hematuria is the medical term for urine that contains blood. Normally there is no blood in the urine. Hematuria can be caused by several things, such as:
Urinary tract infection
Enlarged prostate gland, especially occurs in men over 50 years of age
Malignancy / cancer in the bladder, kidney, or prostate area
If reddish or brownish urine occurs continuously, more often, accompanied by fever, pain when BAK, back pain, weight loss, then it's a good idea to check your husband with a urologist. So that doctors can carry out direct examinations and can be followed by blood tests, urine checks, PSA checks, ultrasound. So that the cause of hematuria can be determined and given the right treatment. Meanwhile, what can be done: Avoid moisture in the groin area, avoid holding BAK, drinking enough water every day.
