Hi,
As there is blood clot while passing urine and there is h/o cycle riding for the first time suggests that she might have slight injury in urethra resulting burning urine and passing blood clot.
You consult your doctor.

hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!
well it looks like she is indeed having a urinary tract infection it would be better to take her to a doctor and get some tests to confirm the same and start her on medications. urinary tract infections if left untreated in children could cause complications.
take care.

Age 52, 5 6 , 165lb, good health. Occasionally over the past four months I have had a sudden desperate urge to pee, at the end of which the urine turned to blood. In the latest incident (yesterday) this was repeated four or five times, each time with a larger bit of clot coming out.

I think my 8 year old daughter may have a bladder or urinary infection because she has wet the bed the last two nights, and has been running to the restroom every 5 minutes for the past three days. This has happened before about a month ago and lasted a day or two then was done. Both times she has had a small amount of blood in her urine; the first time her urine was pink, and this time it was a small clot-like spec. She says her stomach hurts while she was trying to urinate, and stops when she s done. The stomach ache is not in her kidneys, but at her belly button area.

46 yrs old male. Had stones removed some years ago from bladder and tract between kidney and bladder. After which noted ED condition. Now most of the time after passing urine in full, it feels like still there is an urge to pass more. The feeling is at the base of scotrum. Sometimes a little massage enables a little squirt of urine or a few drops. Sometimes unable to pass the last few drops and when leaving the rest room or walking away i can feel the passing of the few drops inside the underwear. Also when passing stools ... sometime instead of urine discharge, sperm or semen is noted to discharge first. What can you tell me about above. Thanks you very much.

my granddaughter is 21 months old. just had rhabdomyosarcoma tumor was really rapid growing. had on uterus, phil.tube and ovary. was removed about wk ago. Now dr says they discovered duplex kidney on one side with the two ureters total. Said now they want to possibly remove the partial kidney and one ureter. Thinks possible was clipped during removal of the rhabdomyosarcoma. It was wrapped around the ureter but didn t say attached to it. She has responded well from the tumor surg. and chemo so far. Is still off the chemo recooperating from the surg. What I want to know is there a large chance the cancer was on that ureter too and should it of been removed as a precaution?

I am a 53 y.o post menopausal female. The opening to my urethra is a couple of centimeters wide which is quite alarming as I don t ever remember this being this way. I also see an area of red tissue about the size of an almond. This appears fixed to the urethral wall. No pain. No problems with urinating. I have a doctor s appointment on Monday, but I am not sure I can wait that long.

very warm regards doctor, i feel a kind of ticklish irritation just at the junction of bladder opening and urethra and iam never able to empty my bladder completely.every time after micturition i have to wait for another minute to empty the bladder by urinating certain drops of urine atlast.these last drops too dont get out of the bladder completely.just when iam about to finish the urination i feel that urethra closes before iam totally able to empty my bladder and applying pressure too...doesnt work.it has been my condition from September 2005.and till now the conditions have improved though but the problem still persists.i have warts like swelled Fordyce s spots on my scrotum for many years.iam 22 years.i got my urine tested in 2007 from a best urologist in India(from AIIMS).he was straight forward and said i had no infection and no stones after he read the results of the urine test.still i said i feel pressure in bladder he gave me Uromax capsules and antibiotics for 14 days after which the problem is still exactly the same.my father was reluctant like hell to take me to a doctor and now after he took me once he s not going to take me again. should i go again myself and is it baldder cancer or will it develop into cancer??please answer as immidiately as possible
