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.

A very personable surgeon. The entire procedure went well.
A poorly run practice – tiny waiting room, crowded, and already running an hour late at 10:30 in the morning. The doctor was acting rushed when he came in and I felt like he couldn't get rid of me fast enough. He prescribed medicine that he knew would not be covered by insurance – and a seven-day supply for a chronic condition, so useless. He did not give me any information about what to do when my finger locks up 15 - 20 times a day. Doctor seemed cold and disinterested.
