I am new I will have a TURBT Aug 5 for a medium sized bladder tumor. My question for woman is this. I am 79 and for over a year I have had what seems to be menstrual crams. Sometimes radiating from my back. Is this a sign of bladder cancer also?

      1. Hey ! Welcome to our community. Hmm so we aren't a medical community so we can't give medical advice. However, I will say cramping is definitely a symptom many with bladder cancer face. I'd recommend mentioning it to your doctor to make sure it's not something in addition. Wishing you the best with your upcoming TURBT ! - Jada ( team member)
