Following reports that taking the popular diabetes drug, Actos, could increase a patient’s risk of developing bladder cancer, many current and past users of the drug are now concerned about their health. For these individuals, it is first important to understand the symptoms of bladder cancer, as well as to learn the proper steps one must take, should these symptoms indeed occur.

The most common signs of bladder cancer include blood in the urine, changes in the color of your urine, pain during urination and/or changes in urination habits. Next, several tests can be used to determine whether or not a patient does, in fact, have bladder cancer. Urologists, oncologists and other medical professionals may perform a Cystoscopy, a Biopsy, a Urine Cytology or image testing procedures in order to properly diagnose their patient.

If you have taken Actos and are now experiencing the signs and symptoms of bladder cancer, be sure to reach out to your doctor in order to determine the best course of action. Early testing and early diagnosis are paramount to protecting one’s health.
