Specific treatment for blood in the urine will be determined by your physician based on:
Your age, overall health, and medical history
Extent of the disease
Underlying cause of the disease
Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
Expectations for the course of the disease
Your opinion or preference
Many causes of blood in the urine are not serious and, in some cases, exercise can cause blood in the urine to go away within a day. It is important to consult your physician since blood in the urine may result from a tumor or other serious problem.
