‘Game-changing’ urine test called UroMark could spare invasive procedure for bladder cancer patients and save NHS millions

A simple urine test designed to detect bladder cancer could spare patients an invasive procedure while also saving the NHS millions of pounds.

The disease strikes about 10,000 people a year in the UK, and in ten per cent of victims it will already have spread outside the bladder at diagnosis.

For most people, an early sign is blood in the urine – but many also have recurrent infections, and may suffer urgency and irritation when they urinate.
