Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is a cancer that starts in the inner lining of the bladder with over 10,000 people being diagnosed with it in the UK every year. It’s the 10th most common cancer in the UK, and the 8th most common cancer in men. Because it is slow growing, it most affects people over the age of 50 and is twice as likely to occur in men as in women, perhaps due to them being exposed more to toxins such as cigarette smoke or work place chemicals.

Treatment depends on the type of bladder cancer, the stage of the diseases and the grade of the tumour so as ever, early detection is critical.
