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. Wm. Hopkins operated on my parathyroid and left me with a paralyzed phrenic nerve, rendering my right lung virtually useless. When he refused to help me figure out why I couldn't breathe, I begged for a referral to a pulmonologist, which he refused to do. Through internet research I figured out my own problem and it was verified through extensive, expensive diagnostic tests. This man has no conscience and I hope he retires before he harms someone else.
