Seeing blood in your urine can be quite a stressful experience, especially when it’s accompanied by pain and discomfort. Even though the appearance of blood in your urine (haematuria) may be caused by a minor condition it is never normal and it can be a symptom of a serious underlying problem, such as kidney or bladder cancer. Therefore, it’s important to be seen by a doctor as soon as possible to prevent any significant damage to your health.
Here, at Midland Health, we offer a private haematuria testing, diagnosis and treatment service, provided by an expert Urology Surgeon with decades of experience in the field. Our healthcare team will conduct all necessary investigations in our state-of-the-art clinic Edgbaston, at the heart of Birmingham, to pinpoint the cause of the bleeding in your urine and construct an efficient treatment plan to alleviate all unpleasant symptoms that you may be experiencing.

There are two types of haematuria: macroscopic (visible to the naked eye) or microscopic (detectable only under a microscope).
The main symptoms of macroscopic haematuria include blood in the urine. It can vary from mild pink colour to crimson red, depending on the amount of blood present. You may also experience pain or discomfort during urination. Microscopic haematuria has no visible symptoms, so it’s generally detected during regular blood testing.
Bleeding in the urine can have two types of causes: urological and non-urological. Determining what has caused the haematuria allows our experts to create an effective treatment plan for you.
The urological causes of haematuria include a number of conditions, such as:
