If you’re like me, the first sign of discomfort has you thinking that there might be something terribly wrong. It is good, however, to be cautious and not dismiss medical symptoms that could be telling you that you have a particular condition. At the very least, you can discuss the symptoms with your doctor, especially if the symptoms together spell out bad news.

It’s important to know what symptoms to look out for when it comes to developing cancer of the bladder, especially as you get older. Certain cancer symptoms throw up red flags immediately, such as when you notice there is blood in your urine. Bloody urine doesn’t necessarily mean you have bladder cancer, but it is a symptom, and you’re likely to get that type of symptom checked out immediately.

Do you find yourself going to the bathroom more often than usual? Do you feel pain when urinating? How about those times that you go to the bathroom even when your bladder isn’t full, yet you feel the need to go right then. As you can see, some of these minor symptoms could be anything, but together, they can spell out for you that you need to see a doctor and have the symptoms assessed to see if it’s possible you do have bladder cancer.

If bladder cancer progresses, you could experience even worse symptoms, and so you don’t want to wait for things to get worse. You might not be able to urinate at all, your feet and even your bones might ache, and you would start losing weight and feel like you’re not hungry.

Early detection is very important when it comes to any type of cancer, and so cancer of the bladder is no different. Be mindful of these irritating symptoms, and don’t just dismiss them as nothing serious.
