Thanks for writing to us.
Haematuria(bleeding with urine) at 85 years you have to take it little seriously.
There could be few reasons for heamaturia. The first cause could be stone somewhere in urinary tract and third could be cancer of urinary bladder or prostate.

I would suggest you to consult a physician,get your urine examination and ultrasound genito urinary system done. You may also need to go for cystocopy(examination of your lower urinary tract with cystoscope.

Hope this answers your question. Let me know if you have any more queries.

Take care.
