Two different forms of hematuria are gross hematuria (urine is red, identified by the naked eye) and microscopic hematuria (identified only by urine tests). It is also very important to pay attention if the hematuria is accompanied by symptoms such as burning sensation to urinate, urinary frequency (daytime or nighttime), urinary urgency, fever, lower abdominal pain and back pain. More concerning is when hematuria has no associated symptoms at all (painless gross hematuria).
