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 Norcross saved my life ..Fabulous cardiac surgeon ..
Treated for Lung Cancer and secondly to have MediPort installed. The entire staff helped to ease all my fears and Dr. was down to earth yet professional. My recoveries from the two surgeries were way better than the experiences I've heard others tell of. I had the lower lobe of my lung removed and 2 ribs. Highly recommend
