Hello doctor,

My husband who is 36 years old, is having painless hematuria since last year. The episodes are not defined, it is present for a month or sometimes as less as a week. MRI, CT scan, and cystoscopy, all show normal findings except hyperemia in the bladder. There are stones in his kidney, and grade I prostrate enlargement, But, all these are less likely to cause hematuria as per our urologists. Kindly suggest what should be done further.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • If your husband has already done urine cytology, CT scan, cystoscopy, PSA (prostate-specific antigen), urine routine examination, culture, and all other the investigation are normal, then just keep a follow-up every year with the same investigations.
  • Is he a smoker? Any history of upper respiratory infection or fever in the last year?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Then you do not have any other option than to follow-up.
  • Repeat a few investigation after six months like urine cytology, urine routine examination, and PSA (prostate-specific antigen).
  • Repeat CT scan and cystoscopy after a year.
