About Bladder Cancer:

Bladder Cancer is a type of cancer in which malignant cells are formed in the tissues of urinary bladder region. The walls of the urinary bladder consist of mainly three layers: mucosa (made up of transitional epithelium cells), lamina propria (made up of connective tissue), and muscularis propria (made up of 3 layers of smooth muscle fibers).

According to American Cancer Society, there will be approximately 80,470 new cases of bladder cancer (about 61,700 in men and 18,770 in women)

Types of bladder cancer:

  • Urothelial carcinoma or Transitional Cell Carcinoma - It accounts for almost 90% of bladder cancers and originate from urothelial cells found in the urinary tract.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma - It accounts for approximately 4% of all bladder cancers.It develops in the squamous cells. Over the period of time, squamous cells which develops in the bladder lining may become cancerous
  • Adenocarcinoma - This type of bladder cancer accounts for 2% and develops in glandular cells.
