Check your wee for blood - health chiefs say
3:00pm Monday 21st October 2013 in News
HEALTH chiefs are warning people not to ignore blood in your urine as part of a campaign to help tackle bladder and kidney cancer.
Warrington’s director of public health Rita Robertson said: “If you notice blood in your pee, even if it’s only once, please go and see your doctor.
“It may be nothing serious, but you need to make sure. Early diagnosis of both types of cancer makes them more treatable, so seeing your doctor sooner could save your life.”
Blood in urine is the most common symptom of bladder and kidney cancers.
People aged 50 and over are more at risk, but anyone who sees blood in their urine should make an appointment with their doctor immediately.
