Bladder Cancer Symptoms

Early stages of bladder cancer may not elicit any symptoms. Symptoms can increase as the tumour increases in size and grows towards the wall of the bladder. Symptoms may include:

  • Blood in the urine
  • An urge to empty bladder
  • More frequent emptying of bladder
  • Pain or burning while urination
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Lower back pain

These symptoms may be caused by other medical conditions. Diagnostic tests will determine their underlying cause.
