ANSWER: Pankaj:

Regardless of whether the bleeding has stopped or not, an evaluation by a physician is required.  Just because the urine is now clear does not necessarily mean the underlying problem has resolved.

QUESTION: sir a person toll me it is a symptom of bladder cancer is it true i am afraid
what condition makes make such urine


Yes, blood in the urine can be the first symptom of a cancer in the bladder.  However, this is more common in older patients and in those who smoke.  Also, bladder cancer is relatively uncommon while blood in the urine is found quite often and is usually something harmless so have it checked but don't get too nervous about it.
