Brief Answer:
likely to be suffering from UTI

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

After seeing the urine report I conclude that he is suffering from Urinary tract infection(UTI) , which is mainly indicated by more number of pus cells. For this he needs to be started on antibiotics and later changed according to culture report.

Passing blood likely goes in favor of either urethritis or stones in urinary tract leading to UTI . If abdominal pain is not there that rules out stone. Urethritis mainly have burning sensation while passing urine.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Regards
Dr Deepika Patil

Hi. I'm a 37 year old female. This morning i saw lots of visible bright red blood in my urine, but have no pain in my stomach or burning sensation whatsoever. Went to the doctor office this afternoon where they checked for UTI infection but the test came negative. Blood wasn't visible like in the morning but there were microscopic trace in the sample. They said they will send my urine sample for culture and suggested that i will go for a stomach ultrasound. What can be causing the blood in the urine especially that there is no pain. And should i do the ultrasound now or wait until the culture result comes back? Thank you
