Would A Urine Test Show Up Signs Of Bladder Cancer?

Postby Neddy » Mon Jun 30, 2014 10:38 am

Having had urine samples tested in a hospital laboratory, would those same tests give a clear indication if a person had bladder cancer, or would blood tests be necessary to show this up?

A urine test would be an indicator for other tests to be carried out.
They do not like to see blood in a urine test as that can indicate a bladder problem or a kidney problem. But remember as well that infection can also produce blood and protein as well.
But they also look at the other indicators in the urine that go together to build a bigger picture.
Bladder cancer is diagnosed by a cystoscopy and biopsy and not by a urine test alone. If they have concerns they will repeat the urine test again and take it from there.

Neither would be a diagnosis of bladder cancer.
Blood in the urine can be a sympton of bladder cancer. And anemia and other blood abnormatilies can be possibly be a sympton of bladder cancer, but they dont diagnose it.

Malignant cells may or may not show up in the urine if you have bladder cancer.
Blood tests do not diagnose cancer.
