Adult Cystitis and Hematuria

Adult Cystitis and Hematuria

Hematuria, the presence of blood in the urine, and cystitis, inflammation of the bladder, are two common conditions that can occur together. In this article we will cover the causes of hematuria and cystitis and how they are related.

Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder. It can be caused by infection, drugs or chemicals and other factors that irritate the lining of the bladder wall. Hematuria is defined as blood in urine. If you have hematuria, it’s important to see a doctor right away because it could signal serious health problems such as kidney stones or cancerous growths on your kidneys (nephrolithiasis). Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is characterized by chronic inflammation of gastrointestinal tract tissues including colon and rectum.

Adult Cystitis

Adult cystitis is a condition in which the bladder becomes inflamed. Symptoms include:

  • frequent urination
  • burning or stinging sensation when you urinate
  • pain in your lower abdomen (belly) or around your urethra (the tube that carries urine out of your body)


Hematuria is the presence of blood in the urine. It’s a sign of an underlying condition, and it can be caused by cystitis, kidney stones or a urinary tract infection.

In adults with hematuria (blood in their urine), the cause is most commonly due to:

  • Urinary tract infection (UTI) – If you have signs of UTI such as frequency and urgency but no fever or pain when urinating then this is likely what’s causing your hematuria

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of conditions that may cause inflammation in the digestive tract. The two main types of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Inflammation can cause symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever and weight loss. Hematuria (blood in the urine) is one of these symptoms that you should report to your doctor if you have it because it could be due to an underlying condition like IBD or kidney stones. It’s also important to let them know if you experience other symptoms such as fatigue or joint pain so they can determine whether there’s something else going on behind the scenes with your kidneys or bladder health
