Suggest treatment when having blood in urine

My friend has blood in her urine and she has tested positive twice and both times there was blood in her urine. The nurse practioner asked if she ever smoked and the answer is yes but she quit 26 years ago. Can smoking be a contributing factor in bladder cancer after 26 years?

Hi,

Blood in urine can most commonly be caused by an infection of the urinary tract or a stone in the urinary tract. I would suggest following investigations:
1. Urine examination (Routine/Microscopic and Culture/Sensitivity)
2. Ultrasound KUB region

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. R. A. Singh, Emergency Medicine Specialist
