Blood in urine with sever lower back pain. Ruled out cancer, kidney stones and urinary infections. Could this be kidney infection?

Hello, This is my first time using a web site like this but umm my 19 year old boy friend has been urinating blood for the past 2 months with horrible low back pain . The doctors are having a hard time diagnosing a problem... They ve ruled out cancer, kidney stones , urinary infections ect.. They are focusing on some type of kidney infection . I m quit knowledgeable on the topic of anatomy and was courious if it is a possible renal infection, but I feel like if that s what it was they would have figured that our by now... And he is a very active person, in shape and is very frustrated with his situation

Hematuria with pain in lower back these are strong possibilities.Kidney stone, any kind of malignancy, Infection yes but with investigation like Ultrsonography,MRI of abdomen,Cystoscopy ,casue should be clear but we sould also rule out Tuberculosis?,any history of drug ingestion, and any kind of Connective tissue disorder also should be looked in to. With limited information exact cause can not be said with certainty.

Consult a uro surgeon.
