 Last year I noticed blood in my urine and went to get checked out and found out I had a kidney stone in my left kidney and a mass on my right kidney. Had to have surgery to remove the kidney stone. Had to have 2 surgeries to remove the mass that was cancer. The first surgery was stopped during and I had to heal from that, then they "burned" off the mass in the 2nd surgery and the follow up appointments said I was clear. 

Well, on Aug. 15, 2017, I noticed blood in my urine again. Went to get checked out on the 16th. I was told I have 5 kidney stones in my right kidney. Also found out I have a Tumor in my right kidney. I am currently waiting to hear from Mayo as I was referred there. Please don't ever ignore it if you find blood in your urine. It means something is really wrong.
