Is it possible that bladder cancer wouldn't show up on an ultrasound?

Yes: U/s is a poor test to look for bladder cancer. Gold standard is a cystoscopy (look in bladder with a camera).

Bladder cancer: Ultrasound is a poor test for detecting bladder cancer. The definitive test remains cystoscopy. This must be performed by a qualified urologist. It can, however, usually be performed in the office.
