Hematuria means blood in the urine. Normally, urine does not contain any blood.
There are two kinds of hematuria:
- Microscopic hematuria—Urine contains a very small amount of blood, which is not visible to the naked eye.
- Gross hematuria—Urine is visibly discolored by blood, appearing red or tea-colored.
