This study will test the sensitivity of gene methylation in the presence of clinically evident, pathologically confirmed bladder cancer. This study will test the specificity of gene methylation in two groups of participants without bladder cancer - requiring cystoscopy for hematuria and for foreign body (urinary stones, stents, and catheters) or infection.
Quantitative real time methylation specific PCR (qMSP) of urine sediment DNA using a panel of several methylated gene markers.

There are currently no biomarkers annotated for this protocol.
