Also Known As: Hematurea, Blood in Urine
In medicine, hematuria, or haematuria, is the presence of red blood cells (erythrocytes) in the urine. It may be idiopathic and/or benign, or it can be a sign that there is a kidney stone or a tumor in the urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, prostate, and urethra), ranging from trivial to lethal. If white blood cellsare found in addition to red blood cells, then it is a signal of urinary tract infection.
This is a symptom, but could indicate a more serous underlying disease.
