Most cases of bladder cancer appear to be caused by exposure to harmful substances, the NHS verified; in particular, tobacco smoke is the reason behind one in three cases of the disease. Around 10,200 people are diagnosed with bladder cancer each year in the UK, reported Cancer Research UK. The bladder acts like an inflatable balloon that stores up to 400ml of urine.

Made up of muscle tissue, this stretchy bag releases urine into the urethra for waste products to exit the body.

Understandably, a tumour growing in the stretchy and muscular bag, known as the bladder, may cause urinary issues.

Around 80 percent of bladder cancer causes some blood in the urine, so it’s a key warning sign.

Also take note if you feel a sense of urgency when you need to visit the loo, as this too can be a sign of cancer.

Pain or a burning sensation when passing urine could also be a telling sign.

Aside from toilet troubles, other indications of bladder cancer include:

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Pain in your back, lower tummy or bones
  • Feeling tired and unwell

It is possible for these symptoms to be caused by other health conditions, such as a urine infection.

In some cases, you GP might request a urine sample so that it can be tested for traces of blood, bacteria, or abnormal cells.

The NHS added: “If your doctor suspects bladder cancer, you’ll be referred to a hospital for further tests.”
