Our Cancer Prevention Team

Look before you flush –
blood in your pee is a key symptom for both bladder and kidney cancer

The main message is: If you notice blood in your pee, even if it's 'just the once', tell your doctor.
You’re not wasting anyone’s time by getting your symptoms checked out. Whatever the problem, your doctor is there to help. And if it is bladder or kidney cancer, early detection makes it easier to treat.

Public Health England are running the Be Clear on Cancer ‘Blood in Pee’ campaign to raise awareness of the symptoms of bladder and kidney cancer.

Other bladder cancer symptoms include:

- Cystitis (a urinary tract infection) that is difficult to treat or comes back quickly after treatment
- Pain when peeing

Other kidney cancer symptoms include:
- A pain that doesn’t go away, either in the tummy or in the side below the ribs
- Weight loss

Sue and Aileen, our specialist Cancer Prevention Team, visit schools, colleges, businesses, social clubs and community groups within the Three Counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, to discuss preventative measures and raise awareness of how early detection can improve outcomes. We provide these vital services completely free of charge.
