Bladder cancer originates in the bladder, which is located in the pelvis and is responsible for storing urine. Malignant cells can start to grow inside the bladder as a result of parasitic infection, smoking and exposure to harmful chemicals. People who smoke are in the risk group because the toxins acquired through smoking tend to accumulate in the bladder and cause irritation, which can later turn into cancer. There are invasive and non-invasive types of this cancer. An invasive type is more difficult to treat because it can spread to other parts of the urinary tract and even further. A non-invasive type is usually located only on the inner wall of the bladder. If not treated in time, a non-invasive type can turn into an invasive one.
According to Cancer Research UK, more than 53% of bladder cancer deaths occur after the age of 80. Over the last ten years, mortality rates have tended to decrease by 9% in men and 7% in women. The mortality rate is also expected to fall by 14% by 2035, which is good news. Bladder cancer is three to four times more common in men than in women. It is also more predominant in Caucasians than other races.
Overall, it may take some time for you to recover after these types of treatment, but they are worth it if you want to fully recover and lead a normal lifestyle.
