Hi, many thanks for the query!
Blood in urine is due to several causes, for example, a Ca-oxalate stone, having spikes on its surface causes mechanical trauma to the mucosa in the urinary tract & bleeding..
To know the cause you need to do certain investigations- USG KUB, X-ray KUB, RFT, Urine (R/M).
Drink plenty of water so that at least 2 litres of urine is voided in 24 hrs.
Consult with your Urologist with the reports.
Wish you a good health.
Take care.
