About Bladder Cancer

Cancer can also affect the bladder, which is often preceded by urinary conditions that may feel like a urinary infection. Tumors of the bladder can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), which can grow back if removed. Like other cancers, bladder cancer can invade nearby organs, such as the prostate in men, the uterus in women. Diagnosis and testing help determine if bladder cancer has affected other parts of the body. Your doctor will provide additional information based on your health, which may include one or more types of recommended treatment, such as surgery combined with radiation.
