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. Peter Y Cheung has the following 2 specialties
- Vascular Surgery
Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Dr. Cheung is exceptionally expert at explaining your condition and answering all your questions, as only a truly competent professional can. I felt good with the doctor, who came highly recommended, from beginning to end. His busy waiting room and surgery schedule also attests to that. After my hernia repair, I did not need to take even 1 pain pill, even though a had the prescribed 30-count bottle vial of Oxycodone. after a simple post-op office visit, my recovery was so uneventful that the second post-op was unnecessary. By the way, also the anesthesiologist and all the staff at YRMC were also a joy. Highly recommend this surgeon if you have a problem.
Dr. Cheung is an amazing surgeon. Going through a mastectomy was hard to go through, but having Dr Cheung as my surgeon, made me feel like I truly had an angel by my side. He went beyond measures to reduce the appearance of the scar, He has treated me with kindness and has been the best Doctor I have ever been treated with. I can't thank him enough for the wonderful job he has done.
