Symptoms of transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) may resemble kidney disease. The most common symptoms of TCC are painful urination, increased frequency to urinate with or without results, and lower back pain.
Signs of TCC are visible blood in urine, high blood pressure, and anemia. Many different types of cancers and medical conditions, including kidney disease, can exhibit similar symptoms and signs as TCC in which undiagnosed bladder cancer and urinary cancer cases go undetected until the cancer advanced into the later stages.
The symptoms and signs of transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) can include the following:
- High blood pressure
- Frequent urination
- Blood in Urine (gross hematuria)
- Microscopic hematuria (undetectable to the visible eye)
- Strong urge to urinate without voiding
- Painful urination
