Symptoms of Bladder Cancer

A person may experience the following bladder cancer symptoms:

  • Blood in the urine either visible (gross hematuria) or found during a urinalysis examination (microscopic hematuria) is most common.
  • Frequent urination or feeling the need to urinate frequently without being able to do so (urgency).
  • Pain during urination (dysuria).

All these symptoms can be signs of other non-cancerous conditions as well, so it is important to talk to a doctor to determine if further tests are required.
