15 Scary Symptoms Of Bladder Cancer Every Woman, Man Needs To Know

Subpubic palpable mass

Subpubic palpable mass can be found in the bladder cancer patient. Your doctor may have to perform an examination under anesthesia to evaluate whether a palpable mass is present. It is also important to note if it is fixed or mobile. A nonmobile palpable mass shows that the disease has spread to the pelvic sidewall and cannot be resected.

A complete physical examination has to be done which may include an examination of the vagina and rectum. Laboratory tests which are ordered may include a urine test known as urinalysis. A procedure called cystoscopy may also be required to check for any possible obstruction in the urinary tract.
