Bladder cancer symptoms

Symptoms vary from person to person. The symptoms you are describing could be many different things. I wouldn't worry about bladder cancer until you talk to your urologist, there is no reason to worry about things that may never happen. Here is a link to more information about bladder cancer symptoms. I hope you don't need us but we are here.

Good luck.

I have a question. I have been having issues with my bladder for about 3 months now. When I was younger I had recurring UTI's. First it started with UTI's and I had taken several antibiotics. Symptoms didn't go away (burning pain in one part of my bladder, urgency no pain when urinating or blood) and all my urine cultures came back clean.
I had a CT scan done and all came back normal - no change in my bladder wall. But my GP referred me to a urologist. Appointment is still 3 weeks away for a consult. My doctor thinks it may be interstitial cystitis based on my symptoms but I'm worried it may be more and being overlooked. Symptoms come and go and have not gone away.

One thing to note is that when i had UTI's I drank a lot of cranberry juice which made my symptoms worse so I stopped.

What were your symptoms of bladder cancer?
How long did it take you to get diagnosed?
