Haematuria – Module 1 – Presentations and Basic Investigations

In the UK, over 10,000 new cases of bladder cancer are diagnosed each year, making it the 4th most common cause of cancer in men and the 12th most common in women. It typically affects people 50 years and over and most commonly presents with blood in the urine (haematuria).

This module is focused on the common causes of blood in the urine, history taking in patients presenting with visible and non-visible haematuria, basic investigations and potential differential diagnoses.

On completion of the module you should be familiar with the different ways in which haematuria presents and understand the importance of good history taking, the rationale for investigation and pathways for onward referral.
