Why Bladder Cancer Is Deadlier for Some
Date:1/8/2009

-- and even then, when it is reported, doctors are 65 percent more likely to refer men than women to urologists.

The authors say that women who find blood in their urine need to be vigilant about having the cause checked as quickly as possible. In women with bladder cancer, sometimes treatment is delayed while doctors investigate other potential causes of blood in the urine. While that is often a sign of a urinary tract infection or something other than cancer, Messing says it's crucial for doctors to consider bladder cancer as a potential cause right from the start.

"People need to be especially vigilant about blood in the urine," said Messing. "Be sure to report it to your doctor, and be sure the doctor investigates the cause thoroughly."

The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2007, 67,000 people in the United States were newly diagnosed with bladder cancer, and 13,700 patients died of the disease.
