Bladder problems: Usually patients may notice bloody urine, frequency of urination, burning sensation and obstructive symptoms such as weak stream and double voiding. Pain in the bladder is a possibility. If one has symptoms of bladder infection and yet not improved with multiple antibiotics, cystoscopy should be considered to rule out bladder tumors.
