Hematuria

Also known as: Blood in the urine, Nephropathy

Hematuria, or blood in the urine, can be either gross (visible) or microscopic (as defined by more than three to five red blood cells per high power field when viewed under magnification).

Regular checkups with a primary care physician are the only way most people discover microscopic amounts of blood in their urine. You should see your doctor regularly to stay healthy.
