Symptoms

Bladder Cancer Symptoms

Blood in the urine is the most common symptom of bladder cancer. Someone experiencing this symptom may notice blood that looks bright red or has a tea-colored appearance. Other times, blood is not detected visually, but rather from a test using a microscope. Bleeding may start and stop with irregularity. It is important to note that infections, benign tumors, bladder stones or other problems can also cause blood in the urine.

Symptoms of bladder cancer can include one or more of the following:

  • Blood in urine (hematuria)
  • Frequent urination
  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Pain during urination
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • Pain in the back
  • Urgent urination

Consult with a Doylestown Health Urologic Cancer Specialist

Doylestown Health urologists are available for consultation with you or anyone in your family experiencing the symptoms of bladder cancer. Our cancer care team encourages anyone with high risk factors for bladder cancer, especially cigarette smoking, to talk to your primary care provider about your screening options. Doylestown Health's Cancer Institute provides patients with the most advanced technologies and treatment options available in the Philadelphia region, including radical cystectomy, to treat and care for patients close to home.
