A person with bladder cancer may have the following symptoms:

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

All these symptoms can be signs of noncancerous conditions as well, so it is important to talk to a doctor to determine if further tests may be required.
