Bladder Tumor Removal Surgery
The bladder is a balloon-shaped hollow organ which stores urine. Bladder Tumor or Bladder Cancer begins most often in the cells that line the inside of the bladder. Bladder Tumor (Bladder Cancer) typically affects older adults and the great majority of bladder tumors (bladder cancers) are diagnosed at an early stage — when bladder cancer is highly treatable. However, even early-stage bladder cancer is likely to recur. For this reason, bladder cancer survivors often undergo follow-up tests to look for bladder cancer recurrence for years after treatment.
Bladder cancer may be caused by genetic mutation or other risk factors- smoking seems to be the most important risk factor, directly affecting the risk of developing bladder cancer. Occupational exposure to benzidine and N-naphthylamine also increase the risk of developing bladder cancer. Occupations at higher risk are bus drivers, mechanics, rubber and leather workers, blacksmiths, and some other. Low fluid intake (one cup or less daily) seems to be another risk factor for developing bladder cancer.
Bladder cancer is usually not associated with specific signs and symptoms- blood in urine, pain, burning, frequent urination, and frequent feeling to urinate, may be associated signs and symptoms which are also associated with other bladder illnesses such as infection and inflammation.
Diagnosis of bladder cancer is made by history and possible sings and symptoms. The gold-standard of diagnosis of bladder cancer is cystoscopy and biopsy.
Treatment options for bladder cancer include surgical removal and chemotherapy.
