Bladder Cancer Symptoms + Signs

Bladder cancer can be a “silent” disease, meaning that it often does not present many symptoms. However, as the cancer becomes more advanced, you may experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Bloody, brown or rust colored urine that may have visible clots in it
  • Needing to urinate more frequently than normal, and intense urgency when needing to urinate
  • Pain and/or burning during urination
  • Incontinence
  • Sensation of a mass in the abdomen
  • Pain in the abdomen or back
  • Fever
  • Decreased appetite and unexplained weight loss
  • Intense fatigue and low energy
  • Swelling in the feet and legs
  • Bone pain

It’s important to note that many of these symptoms can be caused by other, less serious health conditions. So if you’re experiencing them, you should not assume you have bladder cancer. However, you should see your doctor for a diagnosis.
