Men are more likely to develop bladder cancer than women. In fact, it is the fourth most common cancer diagnosed in men, and they have a one in 26 chance of developing this type of cancer during their lifetime.

For the men — and women — who have bladder cancer, there is hope. Norton Cancer Institute offers a variety of treatment options and support services for individuals with bladder cancer.

Understanding Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is a malignant tumor within the bladder. In the United States, bladder cancers usually start from the cells lining the bladder (transitional cells). These tumors may be classified based on their growth pattern. Papillary tumors have a wart-like appearance and are attached to a stalk. Nonpapillary tumors are much less common, but they are more invasive and have a poorer prognosis.

Cystoscopy for Bladder Cancer

Cystoscopy is a procedure that uses a flexible fiber optic scope inserted through the urethra into the urinary bladder. The physician fills the bladder with water and inspects the interior of the bladder. The image seen through the cystoscope may also be viewed on a color monitor and recorded on videotape for later evaluation.
