Yes, the Cipro will most likely help. These are not symptoms of bladder cancer. Bladder cancer would cause blood to show up in the urine. You need to complete the course of antibiotics you were given and the pain should go away. Hope this helps.

Just wondering..get worried easily..I had blood at first when the uti started but it was light and only lasted a short time..can an uti develop over some time
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.

This blood is likely from the infection. But you should see a urologist to do a formal evaluation to include a CT scan and cystoscopy to rule out cancerous causes of bleeding. Hope this helps.
