Blood in Urine: All You Need to Know
Blood in urine can be a symptom of a life-threatening problem. It can also be a nuisance. There is no way to tell one from another without a proper medical evaluation. Your medical doctor can help you decide if you need a full urological evaluation.
Less than 15% of patients nationwide in the US with blood in urine receive the recommended evaluation within 1 year of initial diagnosis.Are you one of them?
At New York Urology Specialists, well over 93% of patients are advised the recommended evaluation. Typically, the entire evaluation is completed within 1-2 weeks and often within days of the initial consultation.
