About Bladder Disease and Cancer
Your bladder is a hollow organ in your lower abdomen. When urine passes out of the kidneys, it collects in the bladder until it is excreted through a tube called the urethra. Bladder function can be affected by a number of conditions, ranging from minor infections to more serious long-term diseases and cancer.
Bladder Diseases and Conditions
Conditions that can affect the bladder include urinary tract infections, urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control) and interstitial cystitis (a chronic inflammation of the bladder wall).
In 2012, about 56,000 men and 18,000 women will be diagnosed with bladder cancer in the United States.1 Most cases of bladder cancer are caught in the early stages, when they are highly treatable.
