Causes and Symptoms
When you see blood in your urine, it is normal to be alarmed. This is called hematuria, and in a lot of cases, it’s caused by something that is easy to treat. However, it can also be an indication of a more serious disease.
There are two types of hematuria — gross hematuria, which is blood that you can actually see, and microscopic hematuria, which is blood in urine that is only visible through a microscope when your urine is tested.
Regardless of the type of hematuria, it is extremely important to determine the reason behind it because the form of treatment to be administered depends on the cause.
