One of the deadliest cancers can be bladder cancer. However, if tumors start to form in your bladder, its early warning signals may be simple to recognize, and an early diagnosis is essential to increasing your chance of survival.
Darker or bloody urine may indicate prostate problems, a urinary tract infection (UTI), or bladder cancer.
Similar to many malignancies, your chances of an early diagnosis, treatment, and recovery are greatly increased if you can recognize the early warning signals of a tumorous growth in your bladder.
One of the more treatable of the over 200 malignancies the human body can develop, bladder cancer has a survival rate of 95% in the first year for those who catch the disease early, and half of all diagnosed patients live for ten years or longer after the cancer is found.
In the past, bladder cancer was one of the most fatal if it wasn't discovered early. Despite being the eighth most frequently diagnosed cancer in the nation, the death rates associated with the disease have nearly halved in the previous 30 years due to increased public knowledge of the cancer's signs, particularly blood in your urine.
A cystoscopy may be performed to view the interior of the urinary tract and bladder in order to check for tumorous growths whenever a doctor becomes suspicious that a symptom may be brought on by bladder cancer.

Blood in the urine is known as hemoturia
Finding blood in your urine is a key warning indication that you should see your doctor right away, albeit it is not the only one.
Bloody urine, often known as haematuria, can appear in several ways. Any blood in your urine, whether it's pinkish, bright red, brownish, or just mildly stained, can be concerning.
It could be a symptom of a urinary tract infection (UTI), another medical condition, or both, even if it does not necessarily mean that you have bladder cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society "A urinary tract infection (UTI), bladder stones, an overactive bladder, or an enlarged prostate are more likely to be the source of these symptoms (in men). However, it's crucial to have them examined by a specialist so that the cause can be identified and, if necessary, treated."
However, 80% of those who had bladder cancer said they had noticed blood in their pee. This is because cells in the inner lining of the bladder proliferate as a result of bladder cancer. In the bladder lining, these cells may assemble to form tumors that may bleed.
