Are rapid weight loss and blood in my urine signs of bladder cancer?

Signs of big problem: Rapid, unintentional weight loss is a sign of a significant illness (cancer or thyroid diseases are possibilities). Bloody urine is another sign of a significant problem (cancer or kidney diseases are possibilities). A person with both symptoms should be at the doctor's office getting a full evaluation.
