Is It Possible To Get Bladder Cancer From An Infection?

Postby Walfrid » Fri May 26, 2017 3:12 am

A couple months back I got a bladder infection that lasted for 3 weeks (i didn't have noticeable symptoms except frequency which i thought was just from drinking more water) ever since that I've had serious frequent urination issues.. it comes on randomly & goes away & comes back, this persistent urge to urinate.. My dr sent away my urine for analysis... & I',m trying to get a referral to a uroligist. But i'm really worried, Is it possible that since I had this infection for so long, I coulda got bladder cancer? I'm only 18 & really worried.

There is no link, stop over-thinking what is after all a really common and usually minor problem. Your GP will reassure you.

Infections do not cause cancer. Your urine analysis will show what else is going on.

I have never heard of Cancer being either contagious or infectious.

Everyone is right.
A bladder infection does not cause bladder cancer.
It takes the bladder six to eight weeks to fully heal from an infection.
If the infection is not completely clear and you do something to cause another infection in that six to eight week time period it will seem like you have a prolonged infection.
It's nothing to worry about.
A longer course of antibiotics may be all that is needed.
