The causes are diverse, ranging from infections and renal stones to malignancies of the urinary tract. It helps to narrow down your differentials if you know whether bleeding is painful or painless. For diagnosis, the basic investigations are urine DR, urine culture and radiology such as X-ray, CT scan or ultrasound.
