Blood in the Urine Prognosis
The prognosis, or outlook, for blood in the urine depends on the cause. Many causes of blood in the urine, such as medications, minor trauma, or kidney stones are temporary and do not have long-term effects. Many causes of hematuria have an excellent prognosis. UTIs have a good prognosis for most people and are treatable. Cancers of the urinary tract may have a good prognosis if detected early. The overall prognosis for urinary tract cancers depends on the exact type of cancer and the extent to which it has spread at the time of diagnosis.
