Blood in the urine - How is it treated?

The treatment of haematuria is aimed at ensuring there are no abnormalities within the kidney, the ureter (pipe that connects the kidney to bladder), bladder, prostate and urethra.

This involves an ultrasound sound scan of the kidneys and sometimes a second Xray test such as CT scan or dye tests (intra-venous urogram). Patients will also have a cystoscopy (telescope test looking into the bladder) to ensure that the lining of the bladder is normal.

Once these tests are normal, most patients can be discharged.

If an abnormaility is found, then your specialist will advise on the best treatment.
