Seeing a healthcare provider at the first sign of symptoms is the best way to find and treat bladder cancer. The earlier bladder cancer is found, the easier it is to treat.
These are some of the early symptoms of bladder cancer:
Bloody urine is often the first sign of bladder cancer. The color of urine may be pink or deep red, depending on the amount of blood. There may be clots of blood in the urine.
These changes can be a sign of bladder cancer:
Urinating more often than normal
Burning, discomfort, or pain when urinating
Need to urinate right away
Weak urine stream
Need to get up to urinate many times during the night
Many of these symptoms may be caused by other, more common health problems. But it's important to see a healthcare provider if you have these symptoms. Only a healthcare provider can tell if you have cancer.
