When should you make an appointment about the symptoms of bladder cancer?

ANSWER

Make an appointment with your doctor if you have any of these other symptoms:

Having these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you have cancer. You could have a urinary tract infection, bladder infection, or some other less serious condition.

  • You have to urinate more often than usual.
  • Your urine changes color.
  • It hurts or burns when you urinate.
  • You feel like you have to urinate -- even if your bladder’s not full.
  • You can’t urinate, or you urinate very little.
