hi.I am a 53 yr old male.actually I noticed rusty colored urine when I looked into my toilet this morning. It looked like blood as it had sunk to the bottom (I did not pass a stool so the 'blood' seemed clearly visible). I keep getting the urge to take a pee but only a few dark colored drops come out. However, when I drink a lot of water clear pee comes out. I tried putting pressure on the area above the root of my penis and there was a slight spurt with small red flecks....I am paranoid! please help

Brief Answer: Most probably blood in urine caused by infection-- Detailed Answer: Welcome to the forum. It is most probably blood in the urine called hematuria. Most probably the symptoms point to infection in urine. However, hematuria needs to be evaluated according to protocol - to rule out infection, stone or tumor mass. So the tests need to be done are Urine analysis, urine culture and ultrasound scan to start with. Treatment is based on the results. Hope this helps, Kindly write back for doubts if any------------ Truly,
