Types of Bladder Cancer?

Transitional cell carcinoma

It starts in the transitional cells in the internal layer of the bladder. Transitional cells are cells that grow shape without becoming damaged when the tissue is increased.

Squamous cell carcinoma
Squamous cell carcinoma is a rare cancer. It starts when small, flat squamous cells form in the bladder after long-term infection or inflammation in the bladder.

Adenocarcinoma is also a rare cancer. It occurs when glandular cells form in the bladder after long-term bladder irritation and inflammation. Glandular cells are what make up the mucus-secreting glands in the body.

    Bladder Cancer Risk Factors

    Smoking : Smoking cigarettes, cigars or pipes may raise the risk of bladder cancer by producing harmful elements to grow in the urine

    Increasing age : Bladder cancer risk rises as you age. Bladder cancer can occur at any age, but it’s rarely seen in people younger than 40.

    Being white : White people have a higher risk of bladder cancer than do people of other races.

    Being a man. Men are more likely to grow bladder cancer than women are.

    Chronic bladder inflammation : Chronic or repeated urinary infections or inflammations, such as might occur with long-term use of a urinary catheter, may raise the risk of a squamous cell bladder cancer.

    Exposure to certain chemicals : Your kidneys play a key role in filtering toxic substances from your bloodstream and pushing them into your bladder. Because of this, it’s thought that being around certain elements may raise the risk of bladder cancer.

    Family History: Having a family history of bladder cancer increases the risk of bladder cancer.

    Symptoms of Bladder Cancer

    Many people with bladder cancer can have blood in their urine, but no discomfort while urinating. Some symptoms might indicate bladder cancer like weakness, weight loss, and bone tenderness, and these can indicate more difficult diseases. You should pay particular attention to the following signs:

    • Blood in the urine
    • Painful urination
    • Frequent urination
    • Urgent urination
    • Urinary desire
    • Pain in the abdominal section
    • Pain in the lower back

    Diagnosis of Bladder Cancer

    If your doctor finds something different in screening or you have any of the signs of Bladder cancer, further tests will be required to diagnose the condition.

    • Biopsy: a biopsy in which your surgeon inserts a small instrument into your urethra and takes a little sample of tissue from your bladder to test for cancer.
    • Blood Tests: This test measures the various kinds of cells in your blood. It can show if you have anemia. Some people with Bladder cancer become weak because the tumor has been bleeding.
    • Imaging: Imaging tests use x-rays, magnetic fields, sound waves, or radioactive substances produce pictures of the inside of your body. Imaging tests allow your surgeon to check the structures of your urinary tract.  Imaging experiments might be taken for many purposes, such as:

    Determining the extent of the cancer

    After verifying that you have bladder cancer, your surgeon may recommend further tests to determine whether your cancer has grown to your lymph nodes or other regions of your body.

    Tests may include:

    • CT scans
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
    • Bone scan
    • Chest X-ray

    Stages of Bladder Cancer

    Your surgeon can rate bladder cancer with a staging system that goes from stages 0 to 4 to recognize how far the cancer has grown. The stages of bladder cancer mean the following:

    • Stage 0 – bladder cancer hasn’t reached past the lining of the bladder.
    • Stage 1 – bladder cancer has reached past the lining of the bladder, but it hasn’t reached the layer of tissue in the bladder.
    • Stage 2– bladder cancer has grown to the layer of muscle in the bladder.
    • Stage 3 – bladder cancer has developed into the tissues that surround the bladder.
    • Stage 4 – bladder cancer has grown past the bladder in the nearby regions of the body.

    Treatment options for Bladder cancer

    Urinary bladder cancer treatment un pune

    Transurethral resection of bladder tumor is the most common surgery for bladder cancer that’s in the beginning stages. This method is done in a hospital.
    Your doctor will put a tool called a resectoscope into your bladder through your urethra. That’s the tube that urine flows through when you go to the toilet. The resectoscope has a wire loop at the end. Your surgeon will use it to remove abnormal tissues. If you still have cancer after the tumor is removed, your surgeon can destroy it using a laser and another tool called a cystoscope.

    This method involves using high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells. It’s a lot like getting an X-ray only much more effective. It doesn’t harm. You might require to get radiation 5 days a week for several weeks.
    Your surgeon may suggest it for one of the following reasons:
    • You have early-stage bladder cancer
    • You have early-stage cancer, but can’t have surgery
    • As a follow-up to TURBT removal surgery
    • To prevent or treat the signs of advanced bladder cancer

    Your doctor will give you chemo through an IV. That means the medicine travels through your bloodstream to other portions of your body. It can destroy cancer cells that may have grown beyond your bladder.

    Targeted therapy
    It uses drugs that hit certain genes on tumor cells to destroy cancer. This treatment limits damage to the healthy cells in your body, which can occur with radiation or chemotherapy.
    Your surgeon will decide which drug is best for you by examining cells from your tumor first.

    • Which type of tumor you have and how many there are
    • Whether it’s harmful
    • If it has expanded to different sections of your body

    Surgeons can treat Bladder Cancer with surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and drugs. The treatment you get will depend on:

    Before explaining my journey, summery of assessment on 5 Point Rating Scale (5 points- excellent, 0 points- Poor) as below: Overall rating: 5 Doctor availability/ Waiting time: 5 Doctor behavior/friendliness: 5 Staff behavior: 5 Communication/ Appointment: 3 Follow-up Care: 5 Billing: 5 Comfort and Cleanliness: 5 Parking: 3 Recommendation: 5 I never thought that someone from my family will suffer with cancer. The day when I came to know that my father has oral cancer, my whole family members were in shock. We were worried due to mainly 2 reasons 1. My father’s age (as he’s 72 years old) and 2. Complexity in treatment process. It started with minor dental pain and when we meet dentist he recommended for an Oncologist. I vigorously searched for best oncologist in Pune. During my search process I found Dr. Sumit Shah’s name and I thought to give him a try. Dr. Shah is incredible. He devotes much time to the patients and their queries. The day I met him, my search came to end. The way he explained about the disease, operation procedure (neck dissection) and recovery process was EXTRAORDINARY. He calmly and patiently explained all doubts and assured us nothing to worry. This gave us peace of mind and we decided to go with treatment process as per Dr. Shah. My father went under successful operation in last month and he’s quickly recovering from it. During the hospitalization period, unlike many doctors, Dr. Shah was available on WhatsApp and responded immediately to the queries/needfulness, which was a big sigh of relief. Now my father is doing well and follow-up is continuing. Appreciate Dr. Shah taking time to go over the diagnosis clearly and treatment options. The staff and the medical assistant were very nice and helpful. The appointment follow-up is wonderful (although they missed once in my case). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thank You Dr. Sumit Shah and team!

    I,one of small scale industrialist, Shubhash Gaikwad, a regular exerciser and healthy food consumer, would never thought to come at this way. But life is about uncertainty and unknown challenges. So before 1 year near my tonsils, I got a lump. So my nephew who is also doctor recommended me to go for advanced opinion and gave reference of Dr. Sumit Shah .First I took chemotherapy and then went to surgery under Dr sumit Shah. As there are some myths about the disease and I have some doubt about it. And Dr. Shah gave all the answers to my questions. My treatment is been completed now. And Ca Rt Retromolar trigone is cured. The journey taught so many lessons for new start. The most important thing is that life is beautiful and u need to take some effors to make it better through disciplines of health and well management of ours mental health.

    Hi This is Ananad pawar . I never thought that my minor dental pain will drive here . As future is unpredictable. My story was too unpredictable. Bt my one of habbit of regular consuming alchohol and tobacco cause to create volcano in my life. 8 months back i went for dental check up. He suggested me for expert advise. One of my relative suggested me the name of Dr. Sumit Shah. When we met Dr. Shah, he clears all doubts and worries about Cancer. This conversation set my mind in peace and relaxed. I became ready to operate my Oral Cancer under Dr.shah's treatment. His friendly and explanative nature about disease made us believe that cancer can be cure and we can restart our life. This journey taught me lesson that stop consuming alcohol and avoid Tobacco.
