About Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer begins when cells in the bladder, grow out of control, forming a mass or tumor.  The walls of the bladder are made up of different types of cells, most cancers develop in the cells that line the inside of the bladder. When cancer grows into or through the other layers of the bladder wall, it becomes more advanced and can be harder to treat.

Types of cancer covered in this category are urothelial carcinoma or transitional cell cancer, squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, small cell cancer and sarcoma (very rare).

Stages of disease include 0, 0a, 0is, Stage I, Stage II, Stage III and Stage IV, and can be low- or high-grade tumors.
