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.

First I must say Dr. Button was not rude and he did maintain a professional attitude through out my exam. However, some probing questions I felt really were attempts to diagnosis my feelings of my place of employment. His assessment of my injury was like the ones from my previous doctors. My sistuation was based on a violent act and many witnesses were there as well as others being hurt. This is as far as I am willing to go into details. It was really an unfortunate event for all involved. Some statements that he made were in regards of my employer and what they are really about... He stated "##### is not their mission statement, I like to compare them to the Godfather... It's just business". Another statement was he didn't know where my employer was going with this, but it could go either way & that he had worked for them previously and has experience with their system of not always being fair. He said that he was hopeful for me & encouraged me in that he was very confident i would heal... in time. All in all I felt that he had empathy for my situation. Well weeks later I got the news that he did not agree with my doctors assessment and felt my injury did not appear to be work related. This completely took me threw a loop as it didn't seem to be where he was going in the assessment. I don't know where to go from here, but this was my experience. Hope it is helpful to someone
I was referred to this doctor by my workers compensation insurance company for something called IME. My attending surgeons (two of them) had declared me disabled based on all my medical injury records, diagnosis and prognosis. The insurance company, however, declined and referred me to this doctor for the so-called independent medical examination.Upon arrival at his office, which was barren, desolate and a smell of gloom and morbidity permeated it, his assistant met me with a morbid look as if to tell me: "Now you're ours!"Having waited for 45 minutes, he finally arrived 30 minutes late for my appointment and I was lead to a dilapidated interrogation room.Instead of examining me as I expected, he proceeded to question the validity of my injury. When I expressed surprise, he rudely interrupted and demanded to know details about my social and family status!I stopped him, advised him that I was videotaping the session with a micro pen recorder; he turned into a witch and started yelling. I terminated the session and now my attorney has summoned him for deposition.I will not quit until a full board review of his license is called for.
