Thanks for query .
Blood in urine (Hematuria) at the age of 50 years can be due to one of the following three reasons .

Consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.

Further treatment will depend upon result of these tests and final diagnosis.
