Bladder cancer is a cancer that originates in the bladder, an organ in your pelvic area which stores urine. It has been found that the cancer usually starts within the cells that line the bladder. Majority of bladder cancers diagnosed at an early age have a high chance of full recovery. Although bladder cancer is generally treatable at an early age, it does have a history of recurring. It is recommended for cancer survivors to follow through with regular checkups to test for the recurrence of bladder cancer. Some risk factors that could increase your chance of developing bladder cancer include smoking, increase in age, being a man, being of white background and personal or family history of cancer. If any symptoms such as frequent urination, painful urination, back pain, pelvic pain and blood in urine occur, it is advised to see a physician.
