No: Even if your blood tests and urinalysis are normal, one can still have bladder cancer. In fact, small bladder tumors can also easily be missed on radiographic studies. The gold standard test is to have an office procedure called a cystoscopy to visualize the bladder lining.

If you are under: 40, yes. Bladder cancer is not common, does not happen under 40, usually introduced by bleeding in your urine.
