What other symptoms may occur with blood in urine (hematuria)?

ANSWER

Hematuria may occur without any other symptoms. Some underlying causes, however, are associated with additional symptoms that can be moderate to severe. These include:

  • Bladder infections (acute cystitis). In adults, bladder infections usually cause burning or pain with urination. Infants with bladder infections may have fever, be irritable, and feed poorly. Older children may have fever, pain and burning while urinating, urgency, and lower belly pain.
  • Kidney infections (pyelonephritis). Symptoms may include fever, chills, and flank pain, which refers to pain in the lower back.
  • Kidney stones. Symptoms may include severe abdominal or pelvic pain.
  • Kidney cancer. You may experience weight loss, loss of appetite, fatigue, or pain in your side
  • Kidney diseases. Symptoms may include weakness, high blood pressure, and body swelling, including puffiness around the eyes.
