Question: blood in urine
|momma2006 - Sun Jan 29, 2006 4:23 pm|
My little brother is 12 and he recently started bleeding during urination and after. What would cause this at such a young age? Could it be kidney stones?

Though there are many causes possible. A UTI is the most common reason. Does he have alot of pain?

If you have not already taken him to the doctor for a proper evaluation and urinalysis, then please do.
There are many reasons, such as urinary tract infection and stones, but there could be other more serious causes.
