Is it possible that bladder cancer wouldn't show up on an ultrasound?

In brief: Bladder cancer

Ultrasound is a poor test for detecting bladder cancer.
The definitive test remains cystoscopy. This must be performed by a qualified urologist. It can, however, usually be performed in the office.

In brief: Yes

U/s is a poor test to look for bladder cancer.
Gold standard is a cystoscopy (look in bladder with a camera).
