Bladder cancer

Bladder cancer develops in the bladder and can affect different types of bladder cells. The bladder is a muscular organ that is described as ‘balloon-like’ that sits in the pelvic area and collects and stores urine.

There is a type of bladder cancer that accounts for 90% of all bladder cases, this is called transitional cell bladder cancer. It is also referred to as urothelial bladder cancer. There are rarer types of bladder cancer that include squamous cell bladder cancer, adenocarcinoma, sarcoma and small cell bladder cancer.
