Hello and welcome to HCM
Pain in the region of kidney and passage of blood in urine indicates some kind of pathology in the urinary tract
. The most common pathology is the presence of stones in kidney or in the upper ureter
You need to get some investigations done. First and fore most an ultrasound
of the abdomen. A X-ray of the abdomen is also helpful because majority of kidney stones are radio-opaque (visible on X-ray film).
If required some other investigations can also be ordered by your doctor like an Intravenous pyelogram
Secondily, complete urine examination which includes routine urine examination and culture. In case of urinary stone
, infections are common which can be identified by urine culture. Antibiotic course will help to resolve the infection.
The management of the stone in kidney or in the ureter depends on the position and size of the stone/ stones. They can be removed by simple laser or by open surgery.
So, consult your doctor for investigations and management.
Thanks and take care
