How to Treat quiz: Haematuria

Relevance to General Practice

Haematuria is a common presenting urological symptom with a diverse range of underlying causes. Its significance lies in the potential for underlying malignancy and the risk of erroneously attributing it to more benign causes.
Urological malignancies are among the most common cancers diagnosed in Australia: renal cancers but only a minority of patients with haematuria will be diagnosed with an underlying malignancy. This may contribute to a reluctance among GPs to over-investigate patients that are perceived as low risk for cancer.
Australian findings suggest that cystoscopy cannot be safely avoided even in younger patients with microscopic haematuria.
