Signs and Symptoms

Following are the symptoms of Bladder Cancer:

  • Hematuria – Blood in the urine
  • Non-visible hematuria – Presence of blood cells in the urine, detectable only by lab tests.


  • Imaging
    • Ultrasound – It is a non-invasive scanning technique. Ultrasound images are created using sound waves and are able to gather real-time images of both anatomy and function. It helps us in the initial evaluation of urinary bladder to look for any solid tumor.


TURBT (Transurethral bladder tumor resection) – The surgeon inserts a tool called Resectoscope through the urethra to reach the inside of the bladder. This tool has a surgical loop on it that resects or cuts off a sample of the tumor tissue or in some cases resects the entire tumor from the bladder.
