Microscopic Hematuria

Microscopic hematuria refers to the presence of red blood cells in the urine, which cannot be seen by the naked eye and can be seen with the help of a microscope. It usually presents with no symptoms, but sometimes a burning sensation or frequent urge to urinate may be associated. Urinary tract infections, renal infections, prostate enlargement, glomerulonephritis, renal stones, cystic disease of the kidney, kidney tumors, or strenuous exercise may cause microscopic hematuria.
