Symptom 2. Hematuria: A Telltale Sign of Kidney Issues
Hematuria, or blood in the urine, is another common symptom of renal angiomyolipoma. Blood may be visible to the naked eye, or it may only be detectable through a microscopic examination of the urine. Hematuria can be caused by the angiomyolipoma rupturing and bleeding into the urinary tract or by the tumor compressing nearby blood vessels, leading to leakage of blood into the urine.
Although hematuria can be caused by several conditions, including urinary tract infections and kidney stones, it should never be ignored. If you notice blood in your urine or if your doctor finds microscopic hematuria during a routine examination, further investigation is necessary to determine the cause and ensure appropriate treatment.
