Nephrologist 's  Response
The cause for blood in the urine could be stone in the calyx,however stone occuring at such an young age is not common.
He needs to be evaluated in detail for this with a view point to find out the cause of stone.
To start with you carry out analysis of 24 hours urine for Calcium,Oxalate,Uric acid,Phosphate,Bicarbonate
