I had a very small, almost undetectable amount of blood in my urine, had a burning sensation when urinating, and urgency to urinate. I never had any pain with bladder cancer.

I just turned 54 in January. Last summer I had a gross amount of blood in urine. I went to the emergency room and was treated for a urinary tract infection. I am now having blood in my urine again. There is really no pain to speak of. I am just scared to go in to get checked as I am worried about bladder cancer. I have had occasional blood in my urine, it has always just stopped. It started again 2 days ago.

I had blood in the urine before I was diagnosed with bladder cancer.

I had some female problems that didn't go away and I was urinating frequently. I had no bleeding. They discovered lots of tumors (one high grade) and removed them and I had BCG for six weeks. The FISH test came back with no cancer cells. I will have a follow up look in the bladder.

I experienced bleeding, and my urine was full of blood clots. But I had no pain.
