Fearful re: bladder cancer. Have had microscopic blood in urine for nearly 2 years. Told due to warfarin. Now bladder not completely emptying. Often.
Not necessarily...: Blood in urine could be caused by multiple reasons. Most commonly UTI and stones. When it is painless it's worrisome for possible cancer but not necessarily.

Your symptoms could be caused by UTI so I advised you to see your pcp or urologist to evaluate further. ...Read more

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.

It should be individualized. So, ask and talk with Doc timely. ...Read more

Most likely: You can be sure there is nothing big and obvious. A cystoscope will find lesions, masses or polyps that are quite small. There is always a risk of flat lesions or "carcinoma in situ", and if you are high risk, then periodic urine cytology or molecular testing may be helpful for screening. ...Read more

I had bladder cancer 15 years ago. I had a trace of blood inmy urine. The doctor scoped me and found no tumor. He sent my blood to get a full report. What else could be the cause of blood in urine?
Lots of things: Congratulations on your cancer survival. With blood in the urine it's certainly possible that the tumor had returned but the scope is reassuring so that's clearly positive. Could be infection causing the blood, could potentially still be treatment related though typically that would have happened earlier. Good luck. ...Read more

Grade and stage: There are typically two ways used together to describe baldder cancer- the grade describes the appearance of the cancer cells themselves and the stage describes the extent of involvement.

Stage would still be critical info. ...Read more

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. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
