Bladder Cancer

The bladdder is a hollow, balloon like organ lying in your pelvis, which collects urine from your kidneys via tubes called ureters and stores it until it is full enough to empty through the uretha.

Each year in this country about ten thousand people develop bladder cancer. It is more common in men than in women. The cause is not known with certainty, but smoking is believed to be an important cause, and also certain chemicals.

The most common symptom is blood in the urine. This may appear suddenly with no apparent cause, and there is unlikely to be any pain associated with it. The urine may vary from rusty brown to deep red, depending on the amount of blood. It may be present some days and not others, and may disappear for weeks or months. The amount of blood is not related to the extent of the cancer. Sometimes blood clots can form and cause pain or obstruction to the flow of urine.
It should be remembered that there are other, more likely reasons why you might have haematuria, such as an infection in your bladder, or kidney stones. It does not necessarily indicate bladder cancer. It is, however, important to have it checked by your GP as soon as possible so that a diagnosis can be made and appropriate treatment started.
