Hello doctor,

My mother got blood in her urine. We did admit her to a nearby hospital and did all her checkups. Please check the report and let me know what is wrong.



Welcome to

I read your query and can understand your concern. I have seen the attached urine examination report (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity). Yes, there is blood in urine and protein and pus cells, and these findings are abnormal. I would like to tell you that there are various causes of such findings in the urine examination reports. It could be a kidney stone or an upper urinary tract infection, or a more serious cause. However, we require more investigations, like an ultrasound of the pelvis and a clinical examination, to arrive at a definite diagnosis. In addition, we need to know about the associated conditions like fever, the recent loss of weight, if any, night sweats, and anemia. I suggest you keep in touch with the clinician at the hospital to which your mother is admitted. Hope this helps. Thanks and take care.
