Bladder Cancer Treatment Bladder cancer typically begins in the lining of your bladder,the balloon- shaped organ in your pelvic area that stores urine. Some bladder cancer remains confined to the lining, while others cases may invade other areas. Most bladder cancers are transitional cell carcinomas (cancer that begins in cells that normally make up the inner lining of the bladder). Other types include squamous cell carcinoma (cancer that begins in thin, flat cells) and adenocarcinoma (cancer that begins in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids). The cells that form squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma develop in the inner lining of the bladder as a result of chronic irritation and inflammation.

Bladder Cancer Risk factors * Smoking : - Smoking appears to be the single greatest risk factor for bladder cancer. * Industrial chemicals : - Repeated exposure to chemicals. * Age : - The chance of getting bladder cancer increases as you grow older. * Race : - Whites are twice as likely to develop bladder cancer as blacks and Hispanics / Asians. * Sex : - Men are about four times as likely to get bladder cancer as women are. * Chemotherapy and radiation therapy : - Treatment with the anti-cancer drugs cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) and ifosfamide (Ifex) increases your risk of bladder cancer. * Chronic bladder inflammation : - Chronic or repeated urinary infections or inflammations (cystitis), such as may happen with long-term use of a urinary catheter. * Personal or family history : - Having bladder cancer once makes it more likely you'll get it again. * Exposure to arsenic : - Drinking water containing high levels of arsenic increases risk of with bladder cancer. * Bladder birth defect : - Rare birth defects of the bladder may lead to an unusual form of bladder cancer called adenocarcinoma.

Diagnosis of Bladder Cancer To diagnose bladder cancer, the doctor will take a medical history, do a physical examination and request a urine test. He or she may order an x-ray test and perform a cystoscopy (described below) and if needed, a biopsy for bladder cancer. A urine sample is taken and then examined under a microscope for cancerous cells (for bladder cancer)……
