Hematuria after Prostate Cancer Treatment


Hematuria refers to the presence of blood in the urine. Hematuria can be caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer, benign tumors, or prostate cancer treatments. There are two types of hematuria: gross and microscopic. Gross hematuria may involve pink, red, brown colors or the presence of blood clots. Microscopic hematuria can be detected only by use of a microscope. Blood in the urine can also be caused by jogger’s hematuria which occurs when repeated jarring of the bladder traumatizes the organ and produces blood.
