Bladder cancer, although not a very common cancer in Malaysia, can be a very aggressive tumour in the later stages of the disease and may lead to psychosocial distress due to the need for surgical intervention.

The risk factors for bladder cancer are smoking and exposure to chemicals used in dye factories, latex (especially for rubber tappers), leather, textiles, printing, plastics, paints and other chemical industries.

When to see the doctor

Bladder cancer signs and symptoms can include:

Blood in urine (haematuria)

Painful urination

Pelvic pain

Back pain

Having to urinate more than usual

Feeling the urge to urinate even if the bladder is not full

Lower back pain on one side

Weak urine stream

Fatigue and weakness

Loss of appetite and weight
