Bladder Cancer

This type of cancer originates in the cells lining of the bladder, the vital and muscular organ in the pelvis responsible for storing urine. Bladder cancer is one of the most common cancers of the urinary tract and in the field of uro oncology.

Causes and Risk Factors

The Consumption of Tobacco

Smoking is the most significant risk factor for bladder cancer. However, smokers are at least three times more likely to develop bladder cancer than people who do not smoke.


The risk of bladder cancer increases with age, and it is more common in older adults.


Surprisingly, men are twice more likely to develop bladder cancer than women.

Chemical Exposure

Exposure to certain industrial chemicals and carcinogens, such as those used in the rubber, textile, and dye industries, can increase the risk of developing bladder cancer.

Chronic Bladder Infections or Irritation

: Long-term irritation and inflammation of the bladder lining may contribute to the development of bladder cancer.


  • Haematuria: The most common symptom of bladder cancer is blood in the urine (haematuria).
  • Frequent Urge of Urination: An increased need to urinate or a sudden urge to urinate.
  • Painful Urination: Discomfort or pain during urination.
  • Back or Pelvic Pain: Pain in the lower back or pelvic area, especially if the cancer has advanced.


  • Cystoscopy: It is a procedure in which a thin tube with a camera (cystoscope) is inserted into the bladder to visually examine the lining of the bladder.
  • Biopsy: If any abnormal tissue is found during a cystoscopy, a sample is taken and examined for cancer cells.
  • Imaging Tests: CT scans, MRIs, or ultrasound may be used to determine the extent and stage of the bladder cancer.
  • Urine Cytology: It is an examination of urine under a microscope to look for cancer cells.


Treatment for bladder cancer mainly depends on the stage and grade of the cancer, as well as the patient’s overall health. However, the treatment options include:

  • Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor (TURBT): For non-invasive tumors, surgeons may remove the tumor using a cystoscope.
  • Intravesical Therapy: A liquid medication is placed directly into the bladder to treat early-stage bladder cancer.
  • Partial or Radical Cystectomy: Surgical removal of part or all of the bladder.
  • Radiation Therapy: In this, high-energy rays are used to target cancer cells.
  • Chemotherapy: Certain medications are used to kill cancer cells or stop their growth.
  • Immunotherapy: Some medications boost the body’s immune system to target and destroy cancer cells.


  • Quit Smoking: Avoid or quit smoking to reduce the risk of developing bladder cancer.
  • Limit Chemical Exposure: Minimize exposure to workplace chemicals and carcinogens.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of fluids to dilute urine and reduce contact with potential carcinogens in the bladder.

Remember that regular medical check-ups and early detection are crucial for managing bladder cancer effectively. Therefore, individuals experiencing symptoms or are at high risk of developing bladder cancer should seek medical evaluation and advice from Dr. Amit Ghose.

For me Dr. Amit Ghose turned out to be God. The way he treated my wife (32 years) was unremarkable. When I came to know about a bladder tumor and was worried, Dr. Ghose and his team did a commendable job.
