  Bladder Cancer

Bladder Cancer forms in the outer layer of the bladder. The following are the various layers of the bladder starting with the outer layer and working in toward the inner layer:

  • urothelium containing urotheilial cells
  • lamina propria
  • muscularis propria

(as the cancer penetrates through layers of fat into the layers of the bladder the bladder cancer becomes harder and harder to treat.)

The following are types of cancer or Bladder Tumors commonly found to affect the bladder:

  • Urothelial Carcinoma
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma
  • Adenocarcinoma
  • Small Cell Carcinoma

Consider the following treatment options for Bladder Cancer:

  • surgery
  • radiation
  • therapy
  • immunotherapy
  • chemotherapy

Many people are treated for Bladder Tumors with either one or various combinations of the above treatment options.
