Bladder cancer symptoms

Postby Guest Posts on Wed Mar 20, 2019 10:48 am

What are the symptoms of bladder cancer and do the symptoms show up relatively quickly or at advanced stage ?

What are the symptoms of ureter cancer ? Again do symptoms appear quickly or at advanced stage?

Bladder (and much more rare ureteric) cancer is commonly asymptomatic in its early stages
The most common sign of a problem is blood in the urine (haematuria), although the majority of patients with haematuria still have a normal assessment
Your GP can check your urine with a simple dipstick test
