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. Levy saved my life!!!! My breast cancer was a 3.5. She first removed the tumor than the right breast. I had no trouble at all. She was always there for me making me feel better! That was seven years ago and I was 63 years old at the time. As I tell other women that ask me what it was like, I have to say that it really wasn't that bad at all, truly! Dr. Levy saved my life and I can't praise her good works enough.
Dr Levy is one of the most caring and talented surgeons I know. My incisions are beautiful and heal extremely well. Going in to surgery and it being my first time ever I was very nervous to the point of tears but Dr Levy comforted me and held my hand and let me know that she was not going to let anything happen to me. This is just the kind of Dr she is WONDERFUL! I would recommend her to anybody in my family including my children. I have nothing but love for Dr Levy and her practices. She provides you with 100% patient care. She holds a place in my heart.
