What are the warning signs of bladder cancer?
The most common — and often, the first — symptom is blood in your urine. It may be just a little, or it can be enough to change the color of your pee. It may turn orange, pink, or darker red.
Make an appointment if you have any of these other symptoms:
- You have to pee more often than usual
- Your urine changes color
- It hurts or burns when you pee
- You feel like you have to pee — even if your bladder’s not full
- You can’t pee, or you pee very little
If you notice any of these things, call your doctor, but don’t panic. Having these symptoms doesn’t mean you have cancer. You could have a urinary tract infection, bladder infection, or some other less serious condition.
