Can bladder cancer be seen on ultrasound? If u/s shows no tumor, should further testing be done on a child with gross terminal hematuria? Not a uti.

Here are some ...: Ultrasound study only gives a gross rough imaging assessment with low sensitivity for small lesions. So, it is an absolute saying no bladder cancer. Terminal gross hematuria suggests its origin from the urethra, especially prostate urethra. So, a cystourethroscopy under anesthesia is needed. But, how far an evaluation should go for? It should be individualized. So, ask and talk with Doc timely. ...Read more

Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding.

In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
