Are tumors in the bladder usually cancerous?

Usually, the early stages of bladder cancer cause bleeding but little or no pain or other symptoms. Blood in the urine does not always mean you have bladder cancer. More often it is caused by other things like an infection, benign (non-cancerous) tumors, stones in the kidney or bladder, or other benign kidney diseases.

Can a tumor in the bladder be benign?

A non-cancerous, or benign, tumour of the bladder is a growth that does not spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body. Non-cancerous tumours are not usually life-threatening. They are usually removed by surgery and do not usually come back (recur). The urothelium is the lining in the bladder and urinary tract.
