  1. A community study of bladder cancer screening by the detection of occult urinary bleeding.

    Article - En anglais

    A possible method of improving the prognosis of bladder cancer may be the widespread introduction of screening.

    We investigated the ability of urine dipsticks to detect early bladder cancer in a group of men in the community.

    In 2,356 men more than 60 years old the urine was tested with a dipstick for the presence of blood.

    The subjects then tested their own urine on 10 subsequent occasions.

    Of the men 474 (20%) had dipstick hematuria and 319 agreed to undergo urological investigation.

    An asymptomatic bladder tumor was found in 17 men, associated in 10 with abnormal urine cytological findings.
