Bladder cancer is the most common cancer in our urinary tract system. Blood in urine (Hematuria) without pain. In the classical normal appeared symptoms, there have been 2 major risk factors that could lead to the cancer. Smoking and Occupational exposure to certain chemicals.

Tobacco consumption is the most relatively risk factor which can increase the Bladder cancer. It is about 50% of the patients came up with the history of smoking. As you know that smoking cigarette will double risk up to 600% higher if we compare with a non-smoker. The risk will absolutely relate to the duration and intensity of smoking. Even you have been tried to quit or halt smoking but either way your cancer risk rate still high for decades as well. The question about electronic cigarettes on this cancer still questionable either.

When you get to the consultation room, physicians will ask you a full medical history along with physical examination or specific urine examination. More important, we must make it very clearly and surely whether a condition that you are in now could  possibly lead to suspect bladder cancer, bladder infection or kidney stone or not? So the CT contrast right here will take advantage and roll perfectly as part of the imaging investigation for the Bladder cancer suspicious.
