Too late,late stage: Early stage of bladder cancer can be detected by simple urine cytology and cystoscopy , sonography will not show early in stages.

Yes sometimes: Ultrasound technology can identify tumors in the bladder, but this is not a common method of detection. The fact that is is visible on ultrasound does not mean it is too late by any means. Removal of the tumor for analysis along with more precise imaging like ct scan will help determine the extent and severity if the tumor and guide subsequent treatment.
