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. Borders was very nice and he took the time to talk to me about my options etc. His personal Medical Assistant is super nice, very professional and was able to schedule me for surgery only 3 days after the office visit! Talk about AWESOME! On the contrary, the front desk office staff is not really anything to "write home about". Besides the fact that they are not real friendly, bording on rude, the wait was nearly 2 hours. This was due to an emergency that my Dr. had to be at, which I found out from him when he finaly seen me. Now, isn't that the job of the front desk to let people know about things like this? Would it break your back (FRONT DESK STAFF) to inform people instead of just letting us sit for hours in the waiting room without any info. Not impressed with the front desk staff! They gave me the feeling that, as the patient, I am a nobody. So many people seem to forget that they have employment due to, in this case, patients like myself! You don't like working with people, perhaps you need to reconsider your profession!
