There is likely to be some relationship. Bladder cancer often stems from repeated irritation of the bladder lining with harsh chemicals over time. The most common early symptom of bladder cancer is blood in the urine, but of course blood in the urine may have other causes.
The most common harmless scare is when people fail to associate eating beetroot with redness in the urine, but actual blood in the urine is, of course, a more serious matter.
There can be environmental, occupational, and lifestyle factors involved in bladder cancer, so it is not a simple issue, and not easy to point the finger at one particular main cause.
Many of the medical treatments of cystitis are based on getting such chemicals into your bladder to kill the infection causing the cystitis. For example, bladder flushing with a catheter and chemical is commonly used for persistent infections. (One thing that needs more research is that the 'intravenous pyelogram' test that examines the urinary system by using a dye that is injected into a vein has been reported as being itself a cause of bladder or kidney cancer. This dye is removed from the bloodstream (excreted) by the kidney as part of urine production. By taking x-ray pictures while the kidneys are excreting the dye, the urologist can see any abnormalities in the outline of the urinary system.)
There is also a relationship between the use of certain antibiotics, and the development of bladder cancer.

Schistosomiasis is a condition caused by infection with the parasite Schistosoma haematobium, a blood fluke (flat worm) that is widespread in places such as Egypt. In man, S. haematobium infection results from contact with contaminated water. The flukes deposit their eggs within the wall of the bladder. Such deposits bring about a response that results in cystitis (bladder inflammation) and hematuria (bloody urine). Over time, the chronic inflammatory response from schistosomiasis leads to changes in the bladder lining, especially if the person is reinfected. The normal transitional epithelium of the inner bladder then is converted to squamous metaplastic epithelium - a form of tissue in which the cells proliferate, or reproduce, more rapidly (see also What Is Bladder Cancer?). A large proportion of individuals with chronic schistosomiasis eventually develop squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), rather than transitional cell carcinoma (TCC), the most common histologic (tissue) type of bladder cancer (see also Types of Bladder Cancer).
Bladder cancer - in particular, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) -- also may be caused by chronic cystitis (bladder inflammation) due to long-term urinary tract infection (UTI), an indwelling catheter (a tube that passes through the urethra into the bladder to drain urine into a bag outside the body), or urinary calculi, or "stones" (mineral deposits within the urinary tract). It is estimated that approximately 2% to 10% of paraplegics with indwelling catheters develop bladder cancer, as do many women with recurrent UTIs. As with schistosomiasis, researchers suspect that chronic inflammation is associated with increased cell reproduction and changes in the bladder lining that eventually may become cancerous."
In men there are links with Prostatitis, and it is felt that blood in the urine is a more serious sign for men than in women. This is partly because of the greater difficulty in infecting mens' bladders, but also because of the known causes of cystitis in men. For serious bladder infections in men, therefore, even when Waterfall D-Mannose® clears the symptoms, it is probably wise to pay the doctor a visit for a thorough check-up.
It makes sense to avoid, so much as is possible, inflammation of the bladder. Waterfall D-Mannose is associated with a healthy urinary tract all the way from the kidneys to the urethra.
