Your bladder is the hollow, muscular organ in your lower belly where urine is stored. When you urinate, the muscles of your bladder contract and push urine out through a tube called the urethra. Bladder cancer starts when cells in the bladder start to grow out of control. These cells can form into a bladder tumor. They can also spread outside your bladder to lymph nodes and to structures far from the bladder, like your bones, lungs or liver. This is known as metastasis.

The wait to see him can be a little long. But that just tells me he is a Dr that is in demand! He is professional, talented, and to the point. I would not dream of using another surgeon! If I moved out of the country, I would come back to him if I needed surgery. I can't say enough about his ability, and attention to the best possible outcome. He gave me the best quality of life because he took on the challenge of my surgery. I am happy, healthy and active thanks to Dr. Mangold!!
