Changes in vision: Though rare overall, there are many types of cancer of the eye and orbit. For ocular tumors, defects in visual field or blurriness are common. Unusual symptoms including visual hallucinations have been described. For orbital lesions, symptoms can include bulging of the eye, paralysis of movement or double vision. If you have any such changes in one or both eyes, you should see your doctor!

How can you get bladder cancer if you're constantly urinating?

In other ways.: The development of bladder cancer has little to do with the frequency of urination. It has everything to do with changes to the lining of the bladder, mostly due to exposure to toxins in the urine, such as from cigarette smoke & industrial chemicals. Inherited genetic factors play a role as well. For those that have developed bladder cancer, one of the symptoms can be frequent urination.
