The bladder is designed to hold urine until it is ready to be released as waste. When the cells of the bladder grow uncontrollably, tumors can develop that may spread to other parts of the body. Bladder cancer is easiest to treat when it is still contained within the bladder wall. Noting the symptoms of bladder cancer should prompt an individual to seek medical attention.
The most common symptom of bladder cancer is blood in the urine. Blood clots from the bladder that pass with urine can signify hematuria. If you are experiencing related symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with your primary care physician.
