Bladder Cancer

The bladder is the organ that holds urine that is waiting to be voided. Currently, scientists are not sure of the cause of the bladder cancer, but we do think smoking increases the risk of developing bladder cancer. The Great American Smokeout is November 15 and is an excellent time to quit smoking.

Symptoms of Bladder Cancer include:

  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Blood in the urine
  • Bone pain
  • Fatigue
  • Painful urination
  • Urinary frequency
  • Urinary urgency
  • Urine leakage
  • Weight loss with no known reason
