Harry Redknapp health: The cancer scare that left him 'fearing for his life'

Harry Redknapp, 73, has been open about many issues regarding his health in the past, and in 2017 he was rushed to hospital for surgery to remove a tumour from his bladder. Birmingham City manager at the time, he revealed fears the tumour might kill him.

“They cut it out, there was no other option.

“Once they did that I was up and about after a couple of days.

“I am relaxed about it now because what can you do?”

Back in 2011, Redknapp had an operation to unblock coronary arteries.


What are the symptoms of bladder cancer?

Blood in urine is the most common symptoms of bladder cancer, according to the NHS.

The medical name for this is haematuria and its usually painless.

“You may notice streaks of blood in your urine or the blood may turn your urine brown,” the health body adds.

If you experience blood in your urine, even if it comes and goes, you should always visit your GP.

While having blood in your urine doesn’t mean you definitely have bladder cancer, it’s always best to get it investigated.

Other cases may be a urinary tract infection, such as cystitis, or a kidney infection.

Blood in urine can also be caused by an enlarged prostate gland in men.
