2. Inflammation of the urethra, bladder or prostate

3. Kidney or bladder cancer

5. Blood clots and blood clotting disorders, such as hemophilia

Generally, if hematuria is caused by physiological reaction like menstruation or if no serious condition is causing hematuria, no treatment is required. If hematuria is caused by infection, antibiotics should be used to control it. In other cases, hematuria is treated by treating its underlying causes.
