Top-Rated Bladder Cancer Treatment

Although some growths (such as cysts) inside the bladder are common and normal, it is still possible for malignant tumors to form. Bladder cancer is most often diagnosed during a routine visit with your doctor, often related to other health concerns. If you are experiencing low back pain on one side, a mass or growth on the lower back, or notice blood in your urine, we encourage you to make an appointment with one of our urologists right away. The sooner you start receiving treatment for bladder cancer, the higher your chances of making a full recovery.
