There's blood and clots of blood in my boyfriend's urine. He feels the need to urinate frequently. There's burning and pain with urination.


That amount of blood in the urine is not normal. Blood in the urine can be a result of infections (urinary tract infections, STDS), but blood can also represent a kidney stone, and even malignancies (cancer). Based on the symptoms described, a kidney stone or a UTI would be high on the list. Blood in the urine needs to be evaluated by a physician in person as soon as possible. The urine should be analyzed for infections and treated if present. An ultrasound or CT scan may be needed to determine if a stone is present. No matter the diagnosis, blood in the urine as described should be evaluated in person as soon as possible.
