Signs of bladder tumors and how to prevent them?



What are the symptoms of bladder cancer?

The main cause is hematuria. Because the tissue of bladder cancer is necrotic and blood vessels are damaged, blood will flow into the urine. Therefore, 85% of bladder cancer patients will have gross hematuria, which means that this hematuria can be seen by our human eyes. See, no microscope needed.

In addition, there are symptoms of urinary tract irritation such as frequent urination, urgency, and dysuria. In the late stage of bladder cancer, it may cause hydronephrosis, renal insufficiency, anemia, weight loss, and so on.

 

How to prevent bladder cancer?

It’s hard. First of all, we need to know what factors are related to the occurrence of bladder cancer. It is currently believed that bladder cancer is related to the above reasons:

1. Professionals who have been exposed to certain carcinogens for a long time, such as dyes, textiles, leather, rubber, plastics, paints, etc., will have an increased risk of bladder cancer.

However, the susceptibility to carcinogens varies greatly among individuals. Some people will never have it in their lives, and some people may have problems for a few months.

2. Smoking: Smoking is the culprit of many diseases. We all know that lung cancer, stomach cancer, etc., bladder cancer is also closely related to smoking. About 1/3 of bladder cancer patients are related to smoking.

Smokers are 4 times the risk of bladder cancer among non-smokers. The more you smoke and the longer, the more likely it is to develop bladder cancer. Well, even if we say that, it is estimated that people who smoke will not be scared.

3. Chronic bladder infection, such as chronic bladder stones, chronic cystitis, etc., long-term irritation can easily induce bladder cancer.


These factors are all related to the occurrence of bladder cancer, but they are not the exact only factor. Therefore, even if we avoid the above three factors, we still cannot completely avoid the occurrence of bladder cancer, because there are other factors that can also induce bladder cancer. For example, living habits, genetic factors, immune environment, etc., we can’t avoid these problems, especially genetic factors.

 

But in general, it is possible to quit smoking. It is also possible not to engage in relevant hazardous occupations.

In addition, I would like to warn my friends that when painless hematuria is found, one must be alert to the possibility of bladder cancer, especially middle-aged and elderly men. Just like the last time a patient, 65 years old, had gross hematuria for 2 months, he didn’t care because it was caused by kidney stones. Later, it was found that it was bladder cancer.
