10 Symptoms of Kidney Stones

Symptom #2: Hematuria

As many as 85% of patients with kidney stones experience at least microscopic hematuria (traces of blood in the urine). While patients are often alarmed when they see blood in their urine, it is rarely dangerous. Your kidney functions to prevent blood from leaking into the urine. As the stones grow in size, it irritates the lining of your kidney or ureter leading to injury to the cells and capillaries causing hematuria. However, if you experience blood in your urine, you should seek medical attention to rule out harmful causes such as bladder cancer, glomerulonephritis, sickle cell disease, hemophilia, and more.
