Bladder cancer

Overview

Bladder cancer is cancer that begins in the balloon-shaped organ that stores urine (the bladder). This cancer typically affects older adults. It's usually diagnosed early, when it's treatable. It's likely to recur, so follow-up tests are typically recommended.

Treatments

Treatments include surgery, biological therapy, and chemotherapy.
