hello arun,
its a condition called hematuria.the causes may be glomerular damage, tumors which erode the urinary tract anywhere along its length, kidney trauma, urinary stones, renal infarcts, acute tubular necrosis, upper and lower urinary tract infections, nephrotoxins, and physical stress.presence of dysmorphic RBC's in urine suggests a glomerular disease such as a glomerulonephritis.so consult a nephrologist about it and follow his advice.take care

Hi Arun, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
The normal RBC count in the urine is 4 or fewer cell per HPF. Do you have Fever, Frequent Urination, Burning sensation while passing urine, abdominal pain or Difficulty passing urine? May be you should get yourself examined by a Urologist to rule out if you have Bladder Infection, Urinary Tract Infection, Renal Calculi or Prostatitis. If possible get a Ultrasound scan and Urine Culture done after consulting your Doctor to rule out the exact cause. Drink Plenty of water.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
