Hematuria or: Blood in the urine, sometimes seen only in a urinanalysis, but it can be gross blood that you can see. But you cannot tell it is invasive bladder cancer until there is a biopsy showing penetration into the muscle. Out;et obstructive symptoms: urgency frequency, can happen, and clot can cause inability to urinate.
Dr. Gene Wong

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.

No: The gallbladder is involved with the digestion of fatty foods. The urinary bladder holds urine that has been filtered from the kidneys. The two structures are unrelated.

Besides cell phones, what are other sources of rf energy that cause cancer?

Proof of cell: Phone link not yet in, microwaves are relatively safe, but radiation is in the electromagnetic spectrum and is a clear cause, and u-v light is part of the spectrum causing skin cancers. All seem to demonstrate direct links to dose and time of exposure. X-rays seem to have no threshold, but very low doses are very unliklely to lead to individual harm, but to a population, a small number will.

How come there are so many new drugs but we cannot find the cure for cancer?

Cancer is not: One disease, or one genetic chnge, but many. Drugs are poisons with side effects, and tumors are smart enought to learn to resist. Single genetic mutations are cured with miracle drugs. Many drugs now hope to keep cancers at bay and allow you to live with the cancer rather than obliterating it. The most fearsome of cancers is glioblastoma (brain tumors) and pancreas cancer. Few baby steps only.
