Blood in pee
Blood in pee
Blood in Pee ?
The NHS and Cancer Research UK are running a “Blood in Pee” campaign.
Why?
- Well, blood in your pee can be an early sign of a problem and it would be silly to ignore something so obvious.
If I see blood in my pee what should I do?
To quote Private Jones. “don’t panic”. There are lots of causes of red colour in the urine and not all of them are serious. Food colouring, beetroot , a heavy period are just some. The most common cause, by a long way, is a simple urinary tract infection. The list is quite long but unfortunately cancer is on it too.
Once you have decided that it is not due to something really obvious you should seek help. Contact your GP and arrange an appointment. Depending on your symptoms, this can usually be a routine one. Take with you a fresh urine specimen in a clean container, as it will save time.
Your GP will probably send some of the sample away and test the rest with a dip-stick that can check for blood. Your GP might treat a suspected infection or arrange further tests depending on your story and the result of any examination.
The important thing is that if you have blood in your urine a reason needs to be found. Its cause might be simple and easily treated but it might be an early sign of more serious disease, including some cancers. All cancers can be treated more easily the earlier they are found.
Don’t ignore “Blood in Pee”.
