Using the BCA-1 Test if you do not have bladder cancer

Certain risk factors may increase your chances of developing bladder cancer, but that does not mean that you will get it, particularly if you're under 60 and do not have symptoms. If you are concerned about symptoms, particularly if you have blood in your urine, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.

Although the BCA-1 Test can reveal a probability of bladder cancer, we are not recommending the use of BCA-1 as a diagnostic test.

When you buy the test, we recommend that you arrange an appointment with your doctor to discuss the report and also any reasons why you wanted to have the BCA-1 Test.

The BCA-1 Test is not a test for hereditary factors for bladder cancer.

This test cannot be used to monitor other cancers, such as prostate, kidney or bowel.
