Blad­der can­cer

Chat - - Health -

More than 10 10,000 000 peo­ple are di­ag­nosed with blad­der can­cer ev­ery year in the UK, mak­ing it the 10th most com­mon form of can­cer. As it takes a long time to de­velop, start­ing in the blad­der lin­ing, it is more likely to oc­cur in older peo­ple, and is rare in peo­ple un­der 40. Smok­ers and those work­ing closely with dyes and chem­i­cals are at higher risk.

Com­mon symp­toms in­clude blood in your urine and dif­fi­culty pass­ing wa­ter. If you’re con­cerned, visit your GP.
