Will Kidney Stones Make You Pee Blood

Will Kidney Stones Make You Pee Blood

Yes. Kidney stones can make you pee blood. Usually, blood accompanied by pain when you pee is due to a kidney stone. If there is no pain, there is a chance it may be bladder cancer or some other issue. In either case if there is blood in your pee you should see a doctor.

You should see a doctor if you are having symptoms of kidney stones. The only way to know for sure if you actually have a kidney stone is to see a family doctor. If it is determined that you have kidney stones, a family doctor will refer you to a Urology Specialist.

If you get to the point where you feel you cannot stand due to the pain, or sit or even lay down or if you notice blood in your urine, then you should see a doctor. It could be a kidney stone, it could be something else.

Why Is There Blood In My Urine?

Kidney stones cause bleeding when you pee because the stones create little rips and tears along the urethra (urinary tract) as they pass through into your urine. The urethra connects the urinary tract to the organ we use to pee.
