  2. Bladder cancer is caused due to the growth of abnormal bladder cells and division of them beyond their usual boundaries. Commonly, these cells grow on the inner layer of the bladder and in some cases this growth can expand into the deeper bladder layers, making it difficult to treat. Here is a list of few facts about bladder cancer.

  3. Bladder cancer is three times more common in men than in women. Though it is more prevalent in men, studies have shown that women are more likely to present advanced tumors and have a worse prognosis than men at almost every stage of the disease. • The 5-year survival rate for women is equal to the 10-year survival rate for men.

  4. Cigarette smoking is the most significant risk factor, with smokers three to four times more likely to get the disease than nonsmokers. • The most common symptom of bladder cancer is bleeding in the urine (hematuria). • Radical cystectomy provides the best chances of cure in patients with muscle invasive disease.

  5. Bladder cancer has a recurrence rate of 50-80 percent and because it requires life-long surveillance, it is the most expensive cancer to treat on a per patient basis. • It is estimated that $3.98 billion is spent to treat bladder cancer each year in the U.S.

  6. People who work with certain chemicals or in certain industries are at higher risk for developing bladder cancer. Industry examples include dye, ether, paint, printing, and rubber. • Individuals with exposure to high levels of arsenic in their drinking water are also at a greater risk, as are those exposed to the chemo drug cyclophosphamide.
