Blood in the urine is the most common clinical sign associated with bladder cancer.
When a patient urinates blood it is known as “gross haematuria” but often there may be blood in the urine without visible signs. Microscopic amounts of blood cannot be seen in your wee with the naked eye. You might notice a change of colour, or your wee might sit “heavier” at the bottom of the toilet bowel.
If you notice any change – go to your GP and get a simple litmus test. You wee into a jar. Your doctor puts a test strip in the jar to see if there is any blood.
It’s simple, non-invasive and can save your life!
Blood in urine is not good.
