In brief: Bladder cancer
In the early stages there are very few effects on the body.
Blood in the urine is often the only sign. As the tumor invades and involves more of the bladder, irritative voiding symptoms can occur. Advanced and metastatic bladder cancer can spread to many areas of the body just as with most cancers.
