Is There Any Connection Between Bedwetting And Bladder Cancer
No: There is no association between bedwetting and bladder cancer. Bedwetting can occur in all age groups due to storage issues with the bladder or abnormal bladder function. Bladder cancer may occur sporadically or be related to toxins and carcinogens that promote cellular damage and eventual cancer from the cells that line the bladder. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Varies: Bladder cancer may be found early and treated with local (intravesicular, intra = in, vesicular = bladder) therapy by a urologist. If the bladder cancer is muscle invasive surgery may be needed. Chemotherapy may be needed before or after surgery for advanced disease. Bladder cancer may present with blood in the urine or other urinary symptoms such as urinary frequency. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Grade and stage: There are typically two ways used together to describe baldder cancer- the grade describes the appearance of the cancer cells themselves and the stage describes the extent of involvement. "aggressive" by itself doesn't really mean much, though it suggests a higher grade tumor which could reasonably be thought to confer a worse prognosis than a lower grade one. Stage would still be critical info. ...Read more
Here are some ...: It's the malignancy starting off from bladder lining (urothelium) with >90% as TCC (transitional cell carcinoma), its highest incidence in men >60s and women >70s, >85% of them having gross or microscopic hematuria-usually painless & off and on, a most definite connection with tobacco smoking, around 1/5 of the patients having irritative voiding, as a lifelong disease so needing lifelong follow-up ...Read more
Depends upon extent: Ot cancer & treatment performed. Simple transurethral resection of superficial cancer may only require catheter for 1 day, > extensive resection may require catheter 4 few days. Cystectomy with urinary diversion or creation of a bowel neo-bladder requires 2 - 4 weeks recovery. ...Read more
No: There is a concept of dose-response which means that a cumulative dose of carcinogens (from cigarette smoke in this example) can lead to tumor development. Consequently, the risk increases with time of exposure. Thus, older persons will carry a higher risk of cancer in this example, although occasionally relatively young patients may develop cancer of the bladder. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See explanation: Anaplastic is a descriptive term for the microscopic appearance of the tumor which may also be labelled "poorly differentiated". This typically translates to more aggressive behavior in the general sense. It means that the tumor cells look very unlike normal bladder cells and the more that is true, the more aggressive the tumor may behave. This holds true for most types of cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Here are some ...: Most patients of bladder cancer start off with off-and-on visible bloody urine with no voiding symptoms or are incidentally found with imaging studies such as CT.IVP and cystoscopy while being evaluated for symptomless invisible blood in the urine (microhematuria). So, take any visible or invisible blood in the urine - hematuria - very seriously so to be evaluated timely. ...Read more
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
