Blood in Urine/Tightness of Leg

Patient : Can a blood clot in the leg cause blood in the urine? I've had a cystoscopy and abdomen ct scans... nothing found.
Symptoms:  Blood in urine; tightness in leg
Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor. No a blood clot in leg won't cause blood in urine. But yes treatment of blood clot on leg (Deep Vein thrombosis DVT) can cause blood in urine. Since a person who has got DVT is always treated with Anti coagulation. So the drugs used for Anti Coagulation like Heparin and Warfarin can cause bleeding from any part of the body including blood in Urine. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy.
