The Cure for Bladder Cancer

Slide 2:

The bladder is a hollow, flexible pouch in your pelvis. Its main job is to store  urine before it leaves your body. Your  kidneys make pee. Tubes called ureters carry the pee from your kidneys to your bladder. When you use the bathroom, the muscles in your bladder push the urine out through a tube called the urethra. You get bladder cancer when bladder cells become abnormal and grow out of control. Over time, a tumor forms. It can spread to nearby lymph nodes and other organs. In severe cases, it can spread to distant parts of your body, including your bones, lungs, or liver. About B ladder Cancer
