– the presence of blood in the urine


What does it mean? How dangerous is it?

Blood in the urine is not a disease, just a symptom of different conditions  such as urinary stones, cancer,  BPH, infection or some  diseases of kidney tissue.  The urine could be red and obviously bloody or hematuria  could be found only with urinanalysis.

What should be done if one day my urine got bloody without any pain or urinary discomfort?

You need to see urologist and have kidney X-ray and exam of your bladder with a lighted scope. Certainly, the main concern is bladder and kidney cancer, particularly, if you are smoker or the long term  former smoker.
