Bloody urine, or hematuria, may not be anything serious at all. Sometimes, however, it can be an indication of an infection, a tumor, or kidney disease. Sometimes, elevated blood cells in the urine are not visible and can only be detected through a urine test. However, a person who can see a difference in color of the urine because it is red, pink, or brown, is experiencing gross hematuria. This much blood in the urine indicates a problem in either the kidney, ureters, bladder, prostate, or urethra. Sometimes it is accompanied by other symptoms, and sometimes it is not, but bloody urine always calls for a visit to the doctor.
