Other (less common) Causes for Peeing Blood
While Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) and Kidney Stones are the most common reasons for blood in pee, the following conditions can cause that as well:
Injury – Only serious injuries would cause urinating blood so you would probably remember it. If your kidneys were severely injured from an accident or contact sports over the past week, this may be the cause. It shouldn’t cause for an alarm and will heal on its own, but if bleeding doesn’t stop in a few days, go see a doctor.
Cancer – Blood in pee may be a sign of bladder, kidney, or prostate cancer. This is more common for people over 50 years of age. Symptoms may vary and you are recommended to see a doctor.
Medications – Drugs that can cause noticeable urinary blood include penicillin, aspirin, the blood thinner heparin, and Cytoxan (the anti-cancer drug cyclophosphamide). Consult your doctor about how to proceed with those medications.
