If I have blood in my urine, does it mean I have bladder cancer?

There are several signs that might indicate cancerous tumors in the bladder: blood in the urine, an increased need to urinate more often than normal, pain while urinating.

However, having these symptoms doesn't always mean that cancer bladder is present. For example, blood in the urine may also indicate kidney cancer, or other, less serious health issues, such as bladder infection or kidney stone.
