Our Experienced Urologists are Specialists in Treatment of Hematuria in New York City
Blood in urine is a common and worrisome symptom that can occur in men and women. Blood in urine, or hematuria as it is often called by doctors, can be a sign of significant underlying medical and urological problem.
When you are faced with a serious health problem you need a highly trained and experienced urologist. Dr. Shteynshlyuger was trained at some of the top hospitals in the United States for Urology. He is fellowship trained and specializes in treating men and women with blood in urine as well as the underlying causes that sometimes include kidney stones, bladder cancer, kidney cancer as well as prostate problems and prostate cancer in men.

What Causes Blood to Appear in Urine?
Blood can appear in urine as a result of many medical conditions. Because many causes of blood in the urine are serious, a full evaluation is necessary. Some of the common causes are:
- Bladder Cancer
- Enlarged Prostate in Men
- Kidney Stones
- Kidney Cysts
- Kidney cancer
- Kidney failure
- Bladder Stones
UTI or Bladder Cancer?
The symptoms of UTI and bladder cancer are very similar: frequent urination, urinary urgency, and blood in urine. In fact, UTI diagnosis is #1 cause for delayed diagnosis of bladder cancer. The reality is that UTI and bladder cancer may coexist. Bleeding and blood clots in the bladder are a ‘treasure-trove’ of nutrients for bacteria and may lead to UTI.
Bladder Cancer is an Often Missed Cause of Hematuria in Men and Women
Blood in urine has many causes which cannot be distinguished without further evaluation. Invisible blood in the urine (“microscopic hematuria“), as well as visible blood in the urine (‘gross hematuria”), can be a sign of bladder cancer.
The risk of bladder cancer increases with age, in particular starting at age 40-45. The risk increases with the amount of blood in the urine. For example, having 5-10 RBC/HPF increases the risk. But the risk is higher if >25-50 RBC/HPF are present. Risk of a malignant bladder neoplasm is further increased in men and women with visible blood in urine.
