Thanks for your query.

Presence of blood in urine is indeed seen in some individuals suffering from renal stones (kidney stones). In the absence of other symptoms such as pain, fever, burning sensation of urine and so on, often the condition heals spontaneously. The recovery is aided by consuming plenty of water. But if he develops the later symptoms or if the culture reveals an infective agent appropriate antibiotics will be prescribed.

So wait till you get the culture reports. In the mean time, suggest to your son to drink lots of water.

If there is no history of similar symptoms in the past, it is unlikely to be a worrisome problem needing no further evaluation.

I hope my answer is reassuring to you. I am available to clarify your doubts if any.

Wish your son speedy recovery.
