What is recurrent haematuria?

Recurrent haematuria is a well documented symptom of benign prostatic hyperplasia. In a large retrospective study of patients who underwent transurethral prostatic resection, haematuria was an indication for surgery in 12%.

Is hematuria always serious?

While in many instances the cause is harmless, blood in urine (hematuria) can indicate a serious disorder. Blood that you can see is called gross hematuria. Urinary blood that’s visible only under a microscope (microscopic hematuria) is found when your doctor tests your urine.

Is occasional RBC in urine normal?

RBCs aren’t usually present in urine, so there isn’t a normal range. However, if you’re menstruating when you provide a urine sample, your urine will likely contain RBCs. This isn’t cause for concern, but make sure to tell your doctor before providing the sample that you’re menstruating.

Can depression and anxiety cause blood in urine?

We suggest that the breakdown of the mucosal protective defences is a potential mechanism linking anxiety to haematuria. As an adaptation to stress, the blood is shunted away from the viscera and skin, thereby preserving perfusion to the vital organs.
