Presentation Transcript

Did you know? Bladder Cancer is the nation’s sixth most common form of cancer with more than 73,000 new cases and about 15,000 deaths each year.


What is Bladder Cancer?

Even though it is very common, it is one form of cancer that most people know very little about. Bladder cancer, also referred to as urothelial carcinoma, begins when the cells in the lining of the bladder start to grow out of control.


What Are The Symptoms Of Bladder Cancer?

The most common symptom is blood in the urine. Other symptoms include irritation when urinating, urgency, and frequency of urination. If you have any of these symptoms, go see your urological care specialist.


Who Is At Risk For Bladder Cancer?

The following factors increase your risk of cancer in the bladder (bladder cancer):

  • Cigarette Smoking — The Single Greatest Risk Factor
  • Exposure To Industrial Chemicals
  • Chemotherapy Or Radiation Therapy For Other Cancers
  • A High Fat Diet


How Is Bladder Cancer Diagnosed?

Your doctor will first perform a thorough history and physical exam. Other tests may include:

  • Urine Cytology
  • Intravenous Pyelogram (IVP) or CT Urography
  • Cystoscopy
  • Tumor Marker Tests
  • Flourescence in Situ Hybridization (FISH)


What should I do if I suspect I may have bladder cancer?

Most bladder cancers can be treated effectively with early detection. If you suspect you may have bladder cancer, it’s better to consult a physician, preferably an urologist as soon as possible.
