The first warning sign of bladder cancer is hematuria, that is, bleeding in the urine. Therefore, the condition is often confused with urine infection or kidney stones, explains doctor Suelen Martins, clinical oncologist at CEON + (Centro de Oncologia). In addition, the patient may or may not feel pain, depending on the extent of the disease.

“Early diagnosis allows the greatest chance of cure in addition to the possibility of less invasive treatments. It is performed through cystoscopy, an endoscopic examination of the bladder, which allows identifying a tumor and removing it if it is in its initial form”, details Suelen.
