Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How is bladder cancer diagnosed?

A: There are many tests your doctor can use including ultrasounds, CT scans, and MRI scans to detect differences in the bladder wall, which would suggest a possible cancer. The urologist will also perform a cystoscopy by looking inside the bladder with a long thin camera to visually examine your bladder and remove samples of any suspicious areas for biopsy. Urine cytology can be performed to detect cancer cells in urine. Other tests detect cells or substances in a urine sample that are relatively specific to bladder cancer.
