Bladder Cancer - Symptoms
Common symptoms of bladder cancer may include:1
- Blood in the urine (making the urine slightly rusty to deep red)
- Pain during urination
- Frequent urination or feeling the need to urinate without results
- Low back pain
These symptoms are not sure signs of bladder cancer. Infections, benign tumors, bladder stones, or other health problems also can cause these symptoms.
Anyone with signs or symptoms of bladder cancer should see a doctor to be diagnosed and treated for any condition or disease they may have as early as possible.
