Patient : My father (81 year old) had sudden hematuria ten days ago. He has BPH for a long time. He was treated at the ER on that day. Now he is getting better. But there still are traces of blood and blood clot in the urine. Cystoscopy revealed the blood is from the prostate. All other tests show normal. Is that considered serious? What kind of treatments are available? Will he be able to take a long flight (11hr) in 7 days? And what precaution should be taken during the flight? Thank you.
