Why going to China for cancer treatment?

Bladder cancer is a type of cancer that originates in the cells of the bladder, which is the organ in the pelvis responsible for storing urine. The most common type of bladder cancer begins in the cells lining the inside of the bladder.

Symptoms of bladder cancer can vary, but common signs may include:

  1. Blood in the urine (hematuria): This is often the most noticeable symptom and may appear pink, red, or cola-colored.

  2. Frequent urination: Feeling the need to urinate more often than usual, or experiencing a sudden urge to urinate.

  3. Pain or burning sensation during urination: This can occur due to irritation of the bladder lining by the cancerous cells.

  4. Pelvic or back pain: Pain in the pelvic area or lower back can occur if the cancer has spread beyond the bladder.

  5. Difficulty urinating: Bladder cancer can obstruct the flow of urine, leading to difficulty in starting or completing urination.

  6. Urinary urgency: Experiencing a sudden, strong urge to urinate, even when the bladder is not full.

  7. Changes in urinary habits: This may include changes in the frequency or urgency of urination, or difficulty in controlling urine flow.

These symptoms can also be caused by other conditions, such as urinary tract infections or benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) in men. However, if you experience any of these symptoms, especially blood in the urine, it’s essential to see a healthcare provider promptly for evaluation and appropriate testing to determine the underlying cause. Early detection and treatment of bladder cancer can significantly improve outcomes.
