Cancer symptoms: Haematuria is the most common sign of a growing tumour in the bladder – Express

The NHS explained: “Once diagnosed, bladder cancer can be classified by how far it has spread.”

If the cancer is contained within the lining of the bladder, it’s known as early bladder cancer.

However, if the cancerous cells spread beyond the lining of the bladder, the cancer could be harder to treat.

In cases of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer, where the cancer is contained inside of the bladder, it is “usually possible” to remove the cancerous cells while leaving the rest of the bladder intact.
