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.

Found Dr. Fang to be exceptional. I was supposed to have bypass surgery several months previous to my coronary bypass with Dr. Fang. The previous (highly rated) surgeon took me in for surgery and after a lengthy period of time came out and told my family my heart was too bad and that he could not operate. He explained that in his opinion I had only a 50% chance of making off the surgery table, and even if I did, that my outlook was pretty hopeless. I thank God that we eventually were guided to Dr. Fang who definitely gave me hope and performed a successful cardiac bypass. Dr. Fang was very pleasant, spent a significant amount of time (over 1 hour) thoroughly explaining options to me and my family. While hospitalized, he visited twice a day despite his very busy surgery schedule, and his nurse practitioner or PA stopped by as well. Schedule a follow-up after surgery quickly. My family and I are ever so grateful for Dr. Fang's expertise and compassion.
This man performed a surgery on me, and left me in the worst pain ever! He would not control my pain at all. His office staff had me go to their office, in the horrible condition that I was in; I could feel every bump on the road and was in excruciating pain! I could not sleep in my bed for weeks, because my bed was too high. This man is so obsessed with himself, that I would never recommend anyone to him! He also had an involuntary tick, which I wish I would have known before. I was in horrible condition when he came to operate on me, and he never followed-up with me! I had one of the most serious surgeries too. I wish I would've discovered his reputation prior, but unfortunately I found out about his reputation afterwards.
