The bladder is an organ near the pelvis in which the urine is stored until it is emptied. There are many layers on the wall of the bladder, and cancer can develop on any of these layers. One form of bladder cancer has a mushroom-like appearance and grows out of the bladder lining. This is a prevalent form of bladder cancer and is called transitional cell carcinoma. Fortunately, though common, it does not spread beyond the bladder’s lining.
In some rare cases, transitional cell carcinoma has been seen to invade the muscular wall of the bladder, and also sometimes into nearby organs. This is difficult to control unless an early diagnosis is conducted to prevent further spread. This type of cancer occurs in men aged more than 70.
The symptoms above do not confirm bladder cancer; hence if you experience these symptoms, your doctor can conduct required tests to rule out the possibility.
