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.

Dr. Grogan was the only doctor willing to remove my mothers carcinoid tumor. No doctor in Michigan would even consider it. The surgery was a success and he was able to save the top lobe of my moms right lung! He is very through and patient! He is a leader in his field!Dr. Grogan has a caring southern charm as well. I highly recommend him. I am a fan.
He is not forthcoming and was going to hold back information on something that went wrong in surgery. I had to trick his nurse into telling me. This left me wondering what else went wrong? I found him and his staff lacking when it came to telling the truth and trustworthiness is something he and his staff fail to cultivate. Hopefully, after reading this review, he and his staff will work harder and see their patients as more than inanimate objects.
