BLADDER CANCER - DYING HAIR
I have been dying my hair (hairdresser) once a month for the last 20 years. There have been various alerts in the midia regarding long term dying of hair and the incidence of bladder cancer. How would I go about checking my bladder for cancer?

RAM, you can have your urine tested for blood and an ultra sound done of the bladder, but the ultimate test would be to have a cystoscopy (examination of the bladder with a camera) done. Good luck.
