I have gross haematuria red blood and clots and my urine test is clear of infection this has been an ongoing problem with some urine infections over the past two years and some urgency and frequency that are not associated with urinary infection
is there a high risk of this being cancer
what is the urgency to see a specialist for further testing like cystoscopy

Hi, I went through your query. Painless gross haematuria i.e. blood in urine is an important symptom of cancer of the urinary tract specially bladder. However the long duration of 2 years with no other symptoms seems to indicate some benign pathology. It could be due to stones or some infection. However it is essential to exclude cancer. So you should consult an urologist urgently. Hope this helps.

My Bro.-in-law who is 74 yrs. He has been urinating bright red blood and passing dark red clots. He has been going to a clinic in Botham, TX. They don t seem to be in a hurry. His clinic told him today that the see stones in both kidneys and something that might be cancer and they would try to get him in OU Med Center about 7/12/17. I have asked him to come to Okla City so that I can get him into OU.
